April Calendar

It is now 1 April, and here in Ottawa, Winter is making a determined last ditch stand against Spring, blanketing us last night with yet another layer of snow. But its days are numbered. Or so we hope.

Meanwhile, this month’s picture from my Soviet poster calendar shows a 1929 poster by Vladimir and Georgii Sternberg for Buster Keaton’s ‘The General’. Georgii died in a motorcycle accident in 1933. Vladimir lived till 1982.

  1. Hi Paul,

    “The General” was my Father’s favorite movie. He was born in England in 1914, fought in WWII, spent 3-1/2 years in a Japanese PoW camp, and passed away here in Canada in 1988.

    I appreciate getting your posts every day. Keep up the excellent work – it is not in vain.
