Hi Gang, in October 1973, Richard S Greene and friends started Our Big Business Oasis #16. Rick will be in town to help us celebrate this milestone on Sunday Oct. 29, 1:00 pm. We will closely approximate his first Tent meeting and a Tent premiere, too at the Firehouse Grille and Pub, 2768 Stark Dr., Willoughby Hills, OH 44094

Rick’s newest book is Advertising Anarchy! Selling Bud Abbott & Lou Costello To War-Torn America . He’ll bring a few, however they are heavy so if you want to be sure to get a copy for him to sign, you can order it from Amazon

We’ll be in the banquet room. You’ll get the most recent Intra Tent Journal and L&H camaraderie for only $5. Let me know by Thurs , Oct. 25, 2023, if you will be attending. We’ll also have all the past issues of the ITJ you missed, to complete your collection.

See you soon! Cheers, G.S. Flip Lauer 216-407-8468

WHAT’S PLAYING: Big Business, 1929 (of course) Stan and Ollie are Christmas tree salesmen in California. Business is slow and grumpy prospective customer (James Finlayson) escalates from a simple argument into full scale mutual destruction, all under the disbelieving gaze of a police officer.

Sons of the Desert, 1933 This exceptionally funny film, have the Boys at their best. We see Stan’s face as he eats the wax apple, or as Ollie attempts to stand-up to his spouse. The Sons themselves are a spoof of every fraternal organization that’s ever taken itself too seriously. A Very funny Charley Chase is the epitome of every obnoxious conventioneer.

The Battle of the Century 1927 This tent premiere has been restored & now includes the bulk of the 2nd reel from the Robert Youngson collection, found by Jon Mirsalis. Look for Lou Costello as a prize fight fan.

The 23rd International Sons of the Desert Convention will return to Another Fine Mess Oasis #49 Sacramento, California June 27-30, 2024.
