Re: FREEDOM RIVER (1971) Orson Welles

Julius and Abe Stern

Hi All: I'm well along researching and writing a book on the Century, Rainbow, and Stern Brothers Comedies of Julius and Abe Stern, a follow-up of sorts to my previous book on Henry Lehrman.

Re: Allright, we'll try this again.........

Wonderful! I was hopeful that I'd be able to add this to my Christmas list, but the release date as announced works nicely for my birthday. Looking forward to it, Richard; thanks!

Re: Ouida Hill

Ouida Hill

I've been digging into Century and Stern Brothers Comedies, figuring them to be a natural extension of my L-Ko research.
