ON FILM: Melton Barker
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. Versions of the film were reportedly shot in El Paso & Las Cruces. "The Kidnappers Foil" was recently added to the National Film Registry, and TAMI is looking for more versions of "The Kidnappers Foil" which remain undiscovered. www.meltonbarker.org.
