AFS Presents: “Melvin And Howard” with Richard Linklater

Wednesday, Mar 19 7:30p

Based on a true (?) story. Hard-working loser Melvin Dummar (played by the underrated Paul Le Mat) helps a disheveled old man (Jason Robards) he finds in the Nevada desert one night, gives him a jolly ride back into the city, and is surprised at the end of the ride to find that he is the billionaire Howard Hughes. Years later Hughes dies and names Dummar in his will. Full of loving satire and memorable characterizations. Co-star Mary Steenburgen won a well-deserved Oscar.
