The National Churchill Museum will screen “She’s working Her Way through College” Tuesday, February 4, 2014, 7:00pm at Missouri River Regional Library in Jefferson City, MO. Starring Ronald Reagan as John Palmer and Virginia Mayo as Angela Gardner, the film follows burlesque dancer Hot Garters Gertie aka Angela Gardner as she decides to begin college, meeting her former teacher John Palmer who is now a professor.

Does she have an ace up her garter?
