MORTIMER INTRODUCES ME
TO THE GANG.

VENT HAVEN HOUSES ABOUT 700 RETIRED FIGURES. ELWOOD IS CHATTING WITH FIGURES MADE BY FRANK MARSHALL. MR. MARSHALL MADE HUNDREDS OF FIGURES FROM THE 1920’S THROUGH THE 1960’S.

I NOTICE A FEW FRIENDS OF MR. HAND’S YOUTH.

ELWOOD GETS TO MEET TWO OF MY CHILDHOOD FRIENDS, JERRY MAHONEY AND KNUCKLEHEAD SMIFF. THE TWO BOYS TELL ELWOOD ABOUT THERE EARLY WORK ON TV WITH PAUL WINCHELL. THE THREE OF THEM WERE TELEVISION PIONEERS.

I COULDN’T LEAVE WITHOUT SHAKING THE HAND OF THE GREATEST
VENTRILOQUIST PARTNER IN ENTERTAINMENT HISTORY.

ELWOOD STANDS IN AWE OF CHARLEY MCCARTHY. CHARLEY WAS THE SIDEKICK OF EDGAR BERGEN, ON STAGE, RADIO, MOTION PICTURES, AND TELEVISION FOR OVER A HALF CENTURY. WITHOUT A DOUBT, HE IS PROBABLY THE MOST BELOVED FIGURE EVER WHITTLED INTO LIFE. ELWOOD MAKES HIS GOOD-BYES, AND INVITES EVERYONE TO COME AND SEE ALL HIS FRIENDS AT VENT HAVEN.
