*** YOU ASKED ***

*****************************

NOTE FROM BEVERLY ... the following request was posted in the September issue. Received some answers, but they were all about "Goodbye My Lady".  The is not the movie

 

?~    A request ... I've been following the AHS Times for several years and don't recall ever seeing any mention of a short "movie" that was filmed in Albany in the early 1950's and starring our local youths.

 

I vaguely recall it, but I do remember it being screened in one of local theaters.  I believe that it was produced during a Tift Park summer event and, perhaps stretching my memory beyond its limits, I think it was a mystery about a kidnapping.  

The only "actor" I recall is Jerry Gerst, and that may be a false memory. If this is something that has not been discussed in the Times, I would like for your crack team of investigative reporters to see if anything can be dug up about this.  Maybe Jerry could be of some help.  Wouldn't it be great if the film could be located? 

I'm fairly certain the title was "Kidnapped". Thanks!



A~ Well sir ... hopefully our crack investigators will come out and make themselves known (smile)!!! 

*******************

?~  

 Hello, my grandfather Glenn Null brought bowling into Albany back in the day. I was wondering if any of you have any pictures of Midtown Lanes when it was that. I'm Jason Warren and I'm very interested in them if y'all have any. Thank you very much.

 

A~ 

I saw the notice in the newsletter requesting photos of Midtown Lanes. I worked there for several years but I don't have any photos. I will be glad to correspond with the person requesting information, as I know several people who might have some photos if you will pass my info on to him. I knew he and his wife Erica well. They lived not far from my family. Glenn lived, I believe, to be 103 years old. I remember his funeral and he is buried at Crown Hill. His wife was many years younger. Erica was German. I had her come and speak to my history class at AHS my Junior Year. She and her family fled Germany during WWII and came to the US.  Thanks for all you do!

~ Sam Lee c/o '78

A~ Hope y'all have gotten together! ~ BSH
