Bridges at Toko-Ri at the New Haven Public Library

NEW HAVEN - The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954) will screen at 5:45 p.m. Nov. 3 at the New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St.

The classic film stars William Holden, Grace Kelly, Frederic March and Mickey Rooney. It is based on a novel by James Michener about a naval aviator assigned to bomb a group of heavily defended bridges during the Korean War," library officials said in a statement.

"The story was based on actual missions flown against bridges at Majon-ni and Changnim-Ni, North Korea, in the winter of 1951–1952, when Michener was a correspondent aboard the aircraft carriers Essex and Valley Forge."

There is no charge for the event, and free parking is available. Call the library at 203-946-8835 for more information.
