    Thanks for this! Watching the multiple brilliant performances by Leonard Wolf has been one of the greatest pleasures of this set. Can't believe he didn't become more prominent.

      He is in the mockumentary (along w/ RDS playing himself)as an announcer in "Is There Sex After Death?" Prankster Alan Abel co-directed and stared in the movie. He's also in No More Excuses and as Mr. Lucky in PS. Like to see AA other movie "The Faking of the President" out.

    Don't forget about the strobe headlights--one of Mr. Swope's car industry inventions.

    Thanks for that clarification, Immoral. You're absolutely right, and you'd think that after I spent nearly a decade eating the stuffed cabbage at Odessa twice a week back in the 80s, I'd have been more accurate. We're changing the text: thanks!

    I read somwhere the actress who played the Swopes maid Elzbieta Czyzewska was a big name actress in her native Poland. Think they made a movie based on her.
