The first time I heard about the Firesign Theatre was via a well worn LP borrowed from a military library back in 1968. I thought they were the best comedy troupe around.

I can remember waiting in line for hours waiting for Marilyn to show up for the premiere of "The Misfits" and had my camera ready to snap a few photos. She didn't show. So I can really live vicariously through Peter Mangone's adventure that day in 1955 following her around and taking a film of her (in color yet!!!!).

You can imagine how excited Peter was that day and he now shares it with all of us. It was a good day for Marilyn and it is a good day for me to have gotten this book. It is certainly worth the price.
