Richard - Looks like an absolutely great line-up! Unfortunately I don't have the pocket change or time to make it out there. Damn! Just want to let everyone know that the Al St. John comedy - "The Paperhangers" - was originally titled "Trouble." Here is a lobby card I've had in my collection for a number of years showing Al and Cliff Bowes doing the bicycle routine with ladder and buckets of wallpaper paste.
