“Pearl” to premiere on OETA Saturday
The family-friendly film “Pearl,” based on the exceptional teen years of the late Eula “Pearl” Carter Scott, will be having its Oklahoma television premiere at 8 p.m. Saturday on the OETA Movie Club hosted by B.J. Wexler.
“Pearl” tells the story of the Chickasaw woman who earned her pilot’s license at the age of 13 in 1928, and by the age of 14, she was flying her father to business appointments and performing in air shows.
The movie, which has won four Dove Foundation awards, was produced by the Chickasaw Nation and filmed at various locations in Oklahoma, including the Harn Homestead, the El Reno Regional Airport, the Jude and Jody Airport and several locations in and around Guthrie, according to a news release.
Chickasaw cast members include:
- Paden Brown, a Byng High School junior who plays Arnetta, Pearl’s little sister
