Academy Rewind is THE TALK OF THE TOWN and THE PRIDE OF THE YANKEES on the 49TH PARALLEL (located on WAKE ISLAND right across from KINGS ROW) since Palmer and Tim brought in THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS as an opening act. They work as almost a PIED PIPER, bringing in the audience nightly, even such guests as MRS. MINIVER. Though the island seems like a RANDOM HARVEST, Palmer and Tim are having a good enough success to cry out, "YANKEE DOODLE DANDY!" with gusto night after night.
