Boston Benchley Chapter Gathers to View Benchley Short Subjects

The Boston "We've Come for the Davenport" Chapter of the Robert Benchley Society gathered on Saturday afternoon April 9th, for a visit to the Boston Athenaeum to see the "Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey" exhibit, followed by viewing of several Benchley short subjects ("How to Figure Income Tax," "How to Sleep" "How to Sub-Let," "Music Made Simple," "Opening Day," and "Music Made Simple") in the church hall of The Church on the Hill (Swedenborgian). Present for the festivities were Sharon Clarke, Jimmy and Eileen Keck, Jim and Lisa Micali, Christopher Morgan, David and Mary Trumbull, Larry Stelmack, and Jean Wilson.
