Dinner Lecture 5:30 pm

  “Welcome to Hollywood”  
with Karl Luthin, DVM

     Karl Luthin has been involved in over 60 movies, either in the capacity of on- site veterinarian, as a re-enactor, or as prop supply- - this category includes both live and plastic horses, uniforms and horse equipment from wars dating back to the French and Indian War thru WWI. 

      It will cover many of his experiences while working on the movie sets in over 60 productions and mini-series.  Multi-faceted Luthin  is often the on-site veterinarian, or re-enactor, frequently providing props, set dressings, and horses, or as an advisor helping to insure the historic accuracy of the equipment or costumes being used.

       Some of the productions he has been involved in are, “Gods and Generals”, “Glory”, The “John Adams” mini-series,  “Into the West”, “Gettysburg”, “Cold Mountain”, and most recently providing a massive amount of props as well as the horse Daniel Day Lewis  rode in the movie  “Lincoln”. Karl will be bringing film clips and slides from many of these movies, as well as movie posters, and the behind-the-scenes stories.
