WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Historical Society will host a special screening of the documentary "Wonderful World of Westport" on Friday, May 2, at noon.

The film was originally a gift to the town by Jim McManus of Marketing Corporation of America to celebrate the 150th anniversary in 1985.

The film was produced by Westport's Frank Jacoby and his wife, Doris Storm.

Narrators from the film include Mason Adams, Joanne Woodward, Harry Reasoner, Win Elliott, former First Selectwomen Marty Hauhuth and Jackie Heneage, Jim McKay, Jo Fox and Dick Leonard of Staples High, among many others. The film also features an original song by Neil and Dara Sedaka.

Copies of the film will be available at the showing for purchase.

Residents are invited to bring a lunch and enjoy the film, which will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Storm.

Those interested in attending should bring a $5 donation. Call 222-1424 to register.

The Westport Historical Society is at 25 Avery Place.
