My buddy Neato Coolville gave me this fantastic unused ticket from a screening of one of my all time favorite films from 1963. I assume the Crest Theatre was somewhere in England but I'm not sure. This was when Lawrence was being shown on a roadshow basis with reserved seating. It would have been fantastic to see it this way but I guess I can live vicariously through the ticket. Thanks again Neato!!

I recently finished this great book about the legendary game show announcer Johnny Olson. Written by one of his proteges Randy West, it's a loving look at Johnny's 50 plus year career in the entertainment industry. While he's best known for his announcing work on The Price Is Right and Match Game, he was a star of early radio and television as well. I was surprised to find out all the stuff he did. It's a fantastic read and a must for any game show fan. Here's a link to pick up the book on Amazon. It's money well spent.
