Bridge to the Future
Bridge to the Future (1951)
Bridge to the Future was produced by Bay State Film Productions, Inc. for WPI. Other than that, no credits are given. However, in the February 1998 issue of The Wire @ WPI, Mary R. Hayward wrote in and provided the real names of Bob and Betty. Her husband, Robert P. Hayward, played the part of "Bob Lansford" just before his graduation in 1950. "Betty" was played by Mary Givens. The original version was also one of the first films that WPI's Lens and Lights Club ever projected. Bridge to the Future was originally on 16mm film. When it was unearthed in the early 1990's, there was no perfect copy. The good parts of each copy had to be spliced together. The title credits are out of focus because that was the best copy available.
