The Lloyd Hamilton Kickstarter campaign was a resounding success, surpassing the original funding goal. A pat on the back to any Balconeers who may have pledged.

Here's a new Kickstarter project that sounds really interesting for Golden Age film fans. It needs your support and it'd be a shame if it didn't get released, as it's a fascinating piece of film history.

Hollywood Victory Caravan - A Star Spangled Show

A new DVD documentary with color movie footage of Laurel & Hardy, Groucho Marx, James Cagney, Bob Hope, Joan Blondell, and many more.

"Notes on a Cowardly Lion", the Bert Lahr biography by his son, theater critic John Lahr, has a chapter about the caravan. Backstage antics were more giddy than salacious; Lahr himself fell in with Cagney, Pat O'Brien, and a few other class clowns.

Cool, thanks Cliff, I've added the book to my cart. Hopefully the Kickstarter project is intriguing enough for you to throw in a few bucks.

Yes, that's right! Only 4 days and 11% to go.

Just $737 dollars short of the goal as I type this. With your help that the DVD of this " one-of-a-kind" piece of Hollywood history will reach its full funding.
