Apr. 11th, 2012 10:12 am PBiFF 17 honors June Lockhart
"The 17th Annual Palm Beach International Film Festival (PBiFF 17)" will begin April 12 and run until April 19th. The exciting news about this year's festival is that Mizner Cultural Arts Centre will be hosting many local screenings during the opening weekend.
June Lockhart will be honored for her lifetime achievement in the motion picture business since the 1930s. Children of the 1950's knew her as Lassie's Mommy and in the 1960s she was the matriarch of the family who was "Lost in Space." In the 1970s June Lockhart smashed sexual stereotypes by portraying a medical doctor on **Petticoat Junction," which costarred Benji, a previous PBiFF honoree.
