It’s time, once again, to come together to remember the June 13, 1942, Nazi saboteur landing on the beach. On Saturday the Amagansett Life-Saving Station will host “an evening of film, re-enactment, and speculation on what really took place.”

Starting at 6 p.m., there will be three screenings: a filmed re-enactment produced by LTV in 2012, a 1993 interview with Carl Jennett, a boatswain’s mate involved in foiling the plot, and “They Came to Blow Up America,” a 1943 feature film starring George Sanders. Hugh King, the East Hampton Town historian, will be the M.C. and “quizmaster.”

David Cataletto, a town trustee, middle school teacher, and A.L.S.S. trustee, will offer opening and closing remarks, and Genie Chipps Henderson, a film editor, archivist, and historian, will also be on hand.

Mr. Cataletto will give another talk on this history next Thursday at the Amagansett Library at 5:30 p.m. Registration is by emailing [email protected].
