The Lightning Express
1876... President Grant is in the White House. America is about to celebrate its Centennial Anniversary. God is in the heavens, and all is right with the world.
But not the Jarrett Players.
Will Kane, a wounded Civil War soldier, and assistant to the impresario Henry Jarrett, dreams up a publicity stunt for the Shakespearean acting company to board a train named "The Lightning Express" and race across the United States to put on "Henry V" in San Francisco.
The stakes are high, and while many want it to succeed, some are determined to see it fail for reasons that reach far beyond the theater, into the shadows of Wall Street robber barons -- and the even deeper shadows of the White House.
Inspired by a true story, "All aboard" for a non-stop ride with an unexpected finish.
Bar Harbor Gold
1914... England and France declare war against Germany!
Europe-bound German Ocean Liner Kronprinzessin Cecilie makes a daring 180-degree turnaround to escape pursuing British and French warships and takes refuge in the exclusive Maine resort, Bar Harbor, of – then neutral – United States.
Inspired by a true story, this elegant ocean liner is filled with millions of dollars' worth of gold bullion, PLUS the cream of Gilded Age high society. In short, she's all dressed up with no place to go and nothing to do but be the hit of the summer’s high society crowd AND a tempting target for one glorious attempt by cunning thieves at “going for the gold.”
