The Donut Dollies Documentary screened to a sold out crowd on Tuesday (Jan 6th) at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and we were honored to have six Donut Dollies in attendance, they are (L-R): Judy Odenbreit (Vietnam ’65-66), Linda Cranor (Korea ’70-71), Linda Pelegríno (Vietnam ‘67), Dorset Anderson (Vietnam ‘68-69 – featured in our film), Mary Cohoe (Vietnam ‘68-69) and Larry Hines (Vietnam ‘68-69).
The Q&A following the screening included (L-R) Jess Hill (producer), Norm Anderson (director), Dorset Anderson (Vietnam ‘68-69 – one of the Donut Dollies featured in our film) and Doug Bradley (Vietnam veteran and author). While the photo below shows an animated moment during the Q&A session, following the screening a young woman who had recently served our country approached us to say that she hadn’t heard of the Donut Dollies before, but was glad to have learned about these women. We are honored to know that the Donut Dollies story reaches across the years and can connect with a wide audience.
We thank everyone who attended this screening and our heartfelt thanks go out to Judy, Linda, Linda, Dorset, Mary and Larry!
