Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Carl & Faith Simpson


McPharlin index says they performed throughout the US during the 40s

Grapevine #21 July 1942 "Under the Bridge" has them performing in a theatre
in Passaic NJ
They get a mention in grapevine #26 as well

The Jan 1978 Puppetry Journal had a list created by Bob Longfield of
nightclub and floor show puppeteers.
62 acts were listed. some were famous and some obscure
the Carl and Faith Simpson are on the list
I think they are listed as the Simpson Marionettes
