Bill and Ruby

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

Bill and Ruby own a novelty store in Akron, Ohio. This film explores their world and their relationships to the objects in the store and to each other. Bill talks about the Depression, Baby Ruth candy bars, LBJ's "stomach," Milton Berle's "Chatter Teeth," and one of his best customers, a mental hospital in the Midwest. Ruby models Jackie Kennedy masks, wigs, oriental hats, the phenomenal MAD MONSTER.

From the first time I met Bill and Ruby I loved them and the strange, quiet simplicity of their world.
