Collectible Sounds

"Gone With the Wind" fans will love the newest collector item from Talking Frames Corp. The company has mounted a full-color photo of Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler embracing. An outline of the movie's story line is printed on the back. With the push of a small button, you can hear authentic audio from the movie soundtrack, which has been recorded on micro-electronics. The "Gone With the Wind" frame is part of a commemorative series called Remarkable Moments. Other talking frames include "The Wizard of Oz," the first-ever moon landing featuring Apollo 11, John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, the Allied invasion of Normandy, and the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team's upset victory over the Soviets. The hand-numbered collectibles are available for $79.95 plus shipping and handling. Call (800) MOMENT-5.
