The Other Country - The Story of Thea & Andrew Foss

First remembered as the character Annie Brennan in a series of stories in the Saturday Evening Post in the late 1920's, Thea Foss came to America's notice in film and TV as "Tugboat Annie" between 1930 and 1950. In 2006, local filmmakers Nancy Bourne Haley and Lucy Ostrander researched and co-produced a film, Finding Thea about this remarkable woman and her Norway-to-the-Pacific-Northwest saga.
