Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Wonderful link. Thanks for the lead.

And have a wonderful holiday!

Thanks, Amba. I really enjoyed the conversation even though I usually avoid the telephone. I did get a cellular phone about a year ago, though, and that has actually worked out rather well because no one ever calls me on it.

I'm still a hillbilly at heart, I reckon, a sort of natural-born, untheoretical Luddite.

With you and Jacques, however, I felt at ease despite the technology between us, so we'll have to do this again next Christmas.

Jacques mentioned some books other than Donbas, so maybe he and you are operating on the same wavelength and will together get those works published.

There are a lot of threads in the tapestry.

Who knows about the film. A few years back, a young filmmaker and a few friends found Charis Wilson and brought her story to a new audience through film.

I got to hear the filmmakers at a screening in Minneapolis. It was touching to hear them describe her reaction to their movie.

I'll buy copies.

And Romanian films are "in" these days ("Four Months, Three Weeks, Two Days"). Who knows?

Happy New Year to y'all.


Hey Richard! You, too.
