Extremely nice fellow. Spent over seven years, on and off, looking for the master reel while writing the three Pirates of the Caribbean movies, found nothing.



Directed by

Contacted Chris while he was directing Hollywood Squares. He said normally directors don't save production elements from their shows. He had nothing.

Did not save a master reel. He didn't even remember doing the show. After much discussion he gave the museum a written release so we can aquire anything the US Copyright office has reguarding WHEW! (see WHEW! US Copyright tab)



Supervised by


Mike Malone

Mike had a 7 inch reel marked "WHEW! - Raw Cuts". We thought the 30 year search had ended. We played the tape on two machines including the deck it was recorded on.....Blank!, Nothing!
