DICK VAN DYKE in "Never A Dull Moment"

August 02, 1968.  NEVER A DULL MOMENT starred Dick Van Dyke, Edward G. Robinson, Dorothy Provine, Henry Silva, Joanna Moore and Tony Bill.  This Walt Disney Production was directed by Jerry Paris.  The movie did not receive good reviews, but hey, it has Dick Van Dyke and Edward G. Robinson - two actors that I really like.

BEN-HUR and Amrah Cut-Outs

 August 29, 1943.  BEN-HUR: A Tale of the CHRIST was written by Lew Wallace and was published in 1880.  This illustrated version of the story ran in the comic section of many papers in 1943 and included cut-outs.   This cut-out is of course BEN-HUR.  Great book and it was turned into a very good movie starring Charlton Heston.

September 05, 1943.  AMRAH, the faithful nurse of BEN-HUR.
