Wayne,

I know about the Yale archive, but I also know that those pictures are Lindbergh's personal photos so I won't go down that road.

Good luck in your endeavors.

I was just wondering what you thought the stills might reveal.

I truly think the Lindbergh baby was overexposed, literally and figuratively speaking.

That's how he came to be kidnapped.

Do you know who was taking video of the the Lindberghs in North Haven, Maine?

I don't think it was just people closely associated with the Lindbergh family.

The press was constantly hounding the Lindberghs, and I don't think Alice Morrow took that film of Betty Gow pushing the Lindbergh baby in the carriage.

Who do you think took the film of the Lindberghs on the dock in North Haven with Mr. and Mrs. Morrow and the film of Betty Gow pushing the Lindbergh baby in his carriage with the dogs following?

I suppose ANY film that was taken of the baby in North Haven, Maine would be interesting, but I'm more curious about who was taking film of the baby in July/August 1931.
