Sorry I couldn’t bring any playbills but they’ve become collector’s items and they are in frames. I did Hell’s Kitchen opposite Jimmy Cagney when he was very young and packed with explosive energy. I worked with Clark Gable who was pussy cat. Then there was Bill Powell a hell of an actor

One more thing…did you say Tuesday and Wednesday or Tuesday or Wednesday? Just Wednesday. Thank you. Yes. I’m free.
