Mr. Projector! Episode #7: "Putting it Together"
In this episode, an interview with Russell Harnden, III!
Russell Harnden, III is a film and trailer editor working in Los Angeles. His credits include the prestigious MGM James Bond series of films with Pierce Brosnan, and more recent campaigns such as Night at the Museum and Snakes on a Plane among many other exciting projects.
Mr. Harnden also is an avid 16mm educational film collector, and speaks regularly about these films, placing them in social and cultural perspective, bridging the gap between what we learned fifty years ago and what we know today.

The Rain in Spain....
Bid on the complete, original 16mm print on eBay through 5/1/07!
We here at ThinkStream Films think it most important to learn to speak well in public. The rewards of a clearly and naturally communicated speech are limitless. The pitfalls of not having this critical competency are equally as limitless, for example, one may be cursed with the unfortunate occupational title of "politician" or "world leader."
It is through the articulate journey of young Tom Webb in this funny little film from Coronet, that we learn that no one will ever accomplish anything important in life without speaking well (especially like a "sports announcer"). We follow Tom as he progresses (with help from his dowdy speech teacher Miss Taylor) from a state of unintelligible babble to one that at least allows his classmates to "understand what [the hell] it is he is saying."
Once Mr. Projector viewed this film, he simply could not prevent himself from screening yet another fine film (albeit on a much larger scale), based on the very same subject matter (with a little help from George Bernard Shaw).
