DALLAS, Nov. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Frontiers of Flight Museum will offer free admission for veterans on Saturday, November 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; free admission is sponsored by Rogge and Cathy DeWitt Dunn. The museum is currently showcasing Rogge Dunn's collection of rare vintage poster art of recruiting and propaganda images from World Wars I and II. Dunn will be speaking about the collection at 1 p.m. on the 8th followed by a 2 p.m. screening of the WWII POW documentary film "4-4-43," presented by writer, historian and filmmaker John Lukacs. The movie will be followed at the museum by a Q&A with Mr. Lukacs.
Dunn's collection includes two dozen works of graphic and rare art from France, Germany, England, Russia and the United States, which highlight significant aspects of world history. Titled "The Art of Persuasion," the artworks sought to influence public opinion and support their nation's war effort with what are often provocative and even disturbing images of war. The collection has been accumulated over several decades by Dunn and can be enjoyed by the public through January 31, 2015.
The documentary "4-4-43" is an American tale of fate, faith, sacrifice, heroism, teamwork and inspirational triumph over long odds. It recounts the April 4, 1943, story of ten American prisoners-of-war and two Filipino convicts who broke out of an escape-proof Imperial Japanese Army prison plantation in the Philippines. Theirs was recognized as the "Greatest Story of the War in the Pacific" by the U.S. War Department in 1944. The account of the escape and the atrocities experienced at the hands of their captors had been lost to history until now.
"This event is a great way to honor the men and women who serve our country and I am proud to be a part of it," said Dunn, who is considered one of Dallas' toughest trial attorneys. "We are excited to be able to see this movie before the general public and to offer that special opportunity to our veterans."
