It is owned by the Lou Costello Estate and we are working with them on this project!
That is great news -- what a great family! Will there be interviews with them etc? Bob met you years ago at the Lafayette theater in Suffern --- I wrote 2 books about Macy's - still trying to find a pic of them in the Macy's Parade --- spoke with Chris years ago she did not know of one, just was in touch with Universal they have nothing either. We have found footage of Boris Karloff as Capt Hook in 1950! Hoppy is also in the footage! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn4pl6jczsw

This is a VERY costly preservation project so there are no funds available for new interviews.

However, we do have two really cool stretch goals lined up if we meet our goal!
When we pledge our amount when do we need to pay the actual pledge?

We were not able to get his contact information. If anyone can reach him, please do!
Mark Hamill is a big A&C fan too. He frequently interacts with random fans on Twitter (and has over 4 million followers) so maybe you could get a retweet from him.

That being said, you guys are already over 50% in under 12 hours so you're moving along very nicely with or without a celebrity endorsement.
