In a rebroadcast from Dec. 29, 2012, Charles talks with Caroline Frick, executive director of the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (www.texasarchive.org). Frick talks about the organization's efforts in discovering over 200 versions of Melton Barker's "The Kidnappers Foil" - a short, "Little Rascals"-inspired film that was shot over & over again in various locations, with the same storyline and script, but with different children in the starring roles.
