WHO WAS FRANK WILCOX?

      Frank Reppy Wilcox was born in De Soto on March 13, 1907, the son of a railroad worker and law clerk. He went on to become one of the most prolific character actors in Hollywood, appearing in more than 400 films and television programs in a career that spanned five decades.
      The film festival named in his honor will celebrate this year the work and career of Dawn Wells, including her role as Mary Ann on the classic television series "Gilligan's Island."  Wells and Wilcox appeared on some of the same 1960s TV shows, and had a common friend, Alan Hale, Jr., who played the Skipper on Gilligan's Island.

      A complete schedule of activities will be updated soon on the tabs above, and please visit our Frank Wilcox Film Festival page on Facebook in the mean time. We'll see you there!
