Rotary Club: Chairman of Pendle Moviemakers John Morgan outlined the story behind a film about Colne man Wallace Hartley, bandmaster of the ill-fated liner Titanic, to members and guests of Barnoldswick and Earby Rotary Club. He said the idea was for the film to be shown at Colne’s Hippodrome Theatre on the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic last year, along with the original film of the sinking, A Night To Remember. At the beginning the film makers hadn’t much material about Wallace Hartley, but more information came to light during research with three or four things that were new. By the time the film was presented, Mr Morgan said he felt he knew Wallace Hartley and that it had been quite an emotional journey. The Barnoldswick meeting enjoyed the Wallace Hartley film, which is on sale, with most of the proceeds going to charity.
