Stuart Heritage Museum Presents

Little Laura and Big John

Step back in time to the 1910s and early 1920s when Stuart and surrounding areas had to deal with the notorious Ashley Gang who were bank and train robbers, stole cars, escaped from jails and killed lawmen that got in their way.

The Hollywood movie version of these real life criminals, especially John Ashley and Laura Upthegrove, portrayed by Fabian Forte and Karen Black, was filmed in Stuart and surrounding locations during March 1969 with many local residents having parts in the movie.

Stuart Heritage Museum presents the showing of the movie "Little Laura and Big John" about the Ashley Gang on Tuesday evening, April 10, 2018, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre.
