LYLE AND THE BIRTHDAY PARTY(narration for children)

#1: "Please," said Mrs. Primm, when she was connected with the zoo, "my crocodile isn't feeling well today. Could you kindly recommend a good crocodile doctor?" "Where is the crocodile?" a man asked. "He's right beside me, here in the living room." said Mrs. Primm. "Living room?" "Yes ... liv ... ing roooom. Please," continued Mrs. Primm, "he must have a doctor." "Well..." The man hesitated. "Yes, do go on," pressed Mrs. Primm. "Well, there is a Dr. Lewis James on East 25th Street who is very good with crocodiles." "Oh thank you. Thank you so very much," said Mrs. Primm gratefully. The instant Mrs. Primm put down the receiver, she realized she had forgotten to ask for the doctor's phone number.

The movie theatre has been a much-needed refuge during times of trouble....During the Depression, viewers were swept away by the sunny-natured Shirley Temple, making them forget about their troubles for a while. It was farewell to all the worries and cares of the day. When the PARAMOUNT THEATER opened its doors, we forgot about names like Hitler and Mussolini. It was time instead to unwind and dream a little. The PARAMOUNT introduced new young singers like Frank Sinatra, and showed films with big stars like Clark Gable and Betty Hutton. These were the times that tried men's souls, but the glitz and glamour of Hollywood kept us distracted and entertained. We retained our perspective, and most importantly, allowed ourselves to hold on, to our national sense of humor.
