Casting Call - Producers of the feature film "Pearl" will have an open call for extras this Sunday, September 7 in Guthrie, OK. Anyone and everyone, no matter the age, shape, size or race, is encouraged to attend to be considered to appear in the film. "Pearl" is the true story of Oklahoman Pearl Carter Scott, a Chickasaw native, who at the age of 12 was befriended by famed aviator Wiley Post. After giving her a ride in his plane, and at the encouragement of her father, Post set Pearl up with flying lessons. By 13 she was a commercial pilot and performed as a barnstormer in county fairs. She also flew businessmen, including her father, to meetings across Oklahoma in the late 1920s and early 1930s. She remains the youngest licensed pilot in America, and is one of only two people, besides Post, allowed to fly his prized plane, the Winnie Mae. The film is suitable for all audiences.
"Pearl" will be shot in areas around Guthrie, Oklahoma City, Goldsby and McComb from September 13 until October 9. The open call for extras will be held from 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm at The Pollard Inn, 124 W. Harrison in Guthrie.
