WHERE'S SAMMY? by Sammy Schulman


Email this review


These are a cameraman's cross references to newspaper headlines, as his story of ""shooting history"" covers the period from the '20's to the present day. News photographer for International New Service, he covered Atlantic flights, the Eucharistic Congress, the shooting of Cermak, Havana revolutions, the Lindbergh kidnapping and the Hauptmann trial, the Papal Coronation, war in Finland, the South American Pan-American Conference, and Task Force A, ashore in an assault wave in the encirclement of Casablanca, with the spotlight on the meeting of Roosevelt and Churchill and Sammy the only cameraman; A son of a rabbi, working like crazy, loving his international circus, and communicating his zest. Shrewd and entertaining memoirs.
