Dear Friends:

This'll be a quick one. We have recently learned of the availability of two videos which feature Teresa. Longtime fan club member and friend, Bill Harper, has discovered, and endorses, an outfit called Sea-Maid. What they've done is taped, directly from television, "The Muppet Show," on which Teresa guest-starred in 1977, and the 1953 movie, "Those Redheads from Seattle." They are offering these two items at very reasonable prices. Bill says the quality of "Redheads" is not a 'mint print, but not bad' while "Muppets" is 'less than stellar, but is worth the money, indeed, to view Teresa!'

On "The Muppet Show," a 30-minute piece of unabashed charm, Teresa sings Cotton Fields and a cleverly presented rendition of Music! Music! Music! plus a snippet of Spinning Wheel. She is also involved in a couple of skits with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal and the rest of the motley crew. It's a delight through and through.

Also being offered from Sea-Maid is Paramount Pictures' "Those Redheads from Seattle." As most of you know, this is the only feature film that Teresa made. Co-starring with her in it are Guy Mitchell, Rhonda Fleming, Gene Barry, Agnes Moorehead and the Bell Sisters. Teresa is featured prominently throughout the film, a film that has plenty of singing and dancing, color and merriment. She does MT. Banjo Man and her 1953 hit, Baby, Baby, Baby (it reached #12 on the pop charts), both in splendid production numbers, and, with Guy Mitchell, the lovely duet, I Guess Ii Was You All the Time. We're a bit biased when it comes to Teresa so you needn't take our word that she's wonderful in it. We just happen to have the Variety review in our files in which it was noted: "Teresa Brewer comes across the screen like a million bucks as does her singing of Baby, Baby, Baby." Billboard magazine jumped on the bandwagon, too, raving that "the saucer-eyed singing doll is a natural for motion picture stardom."

The price for "The Muppet Show" is $7.95, plus $3.00 postage and handling, while "Redheads" is being offered at $9.95, plus $ 5.00 postage and handling. Sea-Maid is located at 7438 West 85th Street, Westchester, CA 90045-2312. We'd like to remind you again that these two videos are taped directly from television. Bill Harper, who has high praise for Sheryl Anmack at the company, has the attractively packaged videos in his collection and heartily recommends them. And, hey, you can't beat the price!

Until next time, best regards.
