This photo, which originally accompanied a story about Ozarks theaters in the West Plains Gazette, showed the “Famous Talkie Tent Show” that Forrest and Oneta Glass took to a Bakersfield Fourth of July celebration in 1939. In the early 1940s, World War II created shortages of gasoline and tires, limiting the circuit the Glasses could travel with their “Talkie Tent.” As a result, they reportedly set up permanent theaters in both Bakersfield and Dora. The Bakersfield theatre, which they called the Glass Theatre, was sold when Forrest died in 1958. This photo was reprinted in the February 2008 edition of the Old Mill Run, accompanying a story by Kenneth Brown titled “History of Movie Theatres in Ozark County.”
