March 17 – Malden Reads film screening of “Tyrus”

Don’t miss a special Malden Reads screening of the film “Tyrus” on Friday, March 17 at 7:00 p.m. at the Malden Senior Community Center. The film celebrates the life and achievements of a pioneering Chinese-American artist, Tyrus Wong, and is cosponsored by the Chinese Cultural Connection as part of their East Meets West cultural dialogue program.

Wong, who came to the United States with his father at the age of nine in 1920, was the original illustrator for the Disney movie “Bambi.” The beautifully textured brush strokes of the settings for the animated film were based on original paintings that Wong produced in his time off while working at an entry-level job as an animator at Disney. Walt Disney chose Wong’s art as the basis for the look of “Bambi,” and all the artists who worked on the film were trained to imitate Wong’s style.

Wong was let go from his job at Disney before “Bambi” was even finished, and he went on to work for 26 years at Warner Brothers, creating the looks for dozens of films, including “Around the World in Eighty Days.” In addition to being a painter, he was a muralist, ceramicist, lithographer, designer and kite maker. For a while he worked for Hallmark creating Christmas cards, one of which sold over a million copies. For the last 30 years of his life, he became locally famous, especially on the beaches around Santa Barbara, for his flying works of art – his breathtakingly beautiful kites. Wong died last December at the age of 106.

The documentary picks up on many of the themes of this year’s Malden Reads book choice, “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Backman, a novel about an older man who finds support in his neighborhood and an unlikely group of people. The two works share themes of resilience, openness and the power of diversity. The film screening will followed by a discussion.

Celebrating a Diamond Anniversary


Mayor Gary Christenson congratulated Midge and Arnie Hammersley on their 60 years of marriage and presented them with a citation on behalf of the City of Malden in recognition of their milestone. Malden residents for more than 60 years, the Hammersleys were married in 1957 and paid $50 a month in rent for their first apartment! Arnie, a Korean War and U.S. Air Force Veteran, worked for 32 years at the Malden Fire Department, retiring as a Captain in 1996. Midge worked in the Malden City Clerk’s Office for many years and then at the IRS in Boston. Midge and Arnie are extremely proud of their three children – David, Donna and Paul – as well as their six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

When Mayor Christenson asked them their secret to such a long and happy marriage, they replied that commitment to each other and their family has been the key to their enduring success!
