This film was made by the Paul K. Longmore Institute at San Francisco State University. Paul was a good friend pf mine who passed away unexpectedly a couple years ago. He was a scholar and a cultural commentator, possessing VHS tapes of over two decades worth of telethons for MS, juvenile arthritis, polio, etc. He was in the process of writing a book about the way the telethon charity model keeps disabled people locked away in a box of spectacle and fairytale. I miss Paul and I wish we had that book!
