I am passing on the sad news that the poet Daisy Aldan died recently. In 1953 she made the film "Once Upon an El", which features many important writers and filmmakers protesting against the closure of the elevated railway in New York. I wrote to her last to enquire about the film but unfortunately did not get a reply. Does anyone remember seeing this film, or know of its wherabouts ?
