My favorite short subject..
30 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Edwin E. Olsen was a business partner in the home building business with my father, Leslie Howard Nelson, during the final years of the Great Depression. I remember watching the first version of this movie in the basement of our home in Pleasant Hills, Pa. He then showed it locally and finally at Carnegie Hall. World War 2 forced them to shut down their construction business and then we all moved to California in 1943. My father retired to a ranch in San Fernando Valley and eventually moved to Santa Barbara. Ed Olsen's movie was purchased by a professional film company and Ed went on to film many short subjects for them. I am now the last living member of both families and would love to watch "Facing Your Danger" with my family. Is there any way that I could obtain a copy of this movie? Thanks, Bergen Nelson
