    Your films and still are wonderful. I once saw, in one of your Abyssinia war films, women carrying supplies and marching with the troops. Can\'t locate that now. please help.
    In my work space I am collecting potential clips I would like to include in a forthcoming book. What do I do to procure the copy right permission and publishable quality stills?

    I would much appreciate your kind assistance on this.
