Re: Al Joy May Have Competition............

I found an on-line book about Atlantic City aviation. Glenn Curtiss first
flew there in 1910 and came back later to set up a seaplane base.
The Navy flew seaplanes from there starting during WWI until 1922.

Re: Unidentified comedy western

Thank you so much for all of your help. I really appreciate it. I was beginning to circle around THREE FACES WEST myself after Steve's comment about STEPPING IN THE GAS, but was struggling to find a synopsis or a contemporary image to confirm it, so I am glad that you confirmed it for me Richard. Th...
