We are going to focus on Charles today, because it is Charles' 100th birthday. But when I speak of him, I'm really skaepnig of both of them as a team. Here's Charles when he was three. So he would be 100 this June. We have a lot of cool cbonertelias that we're going to do. The thing about their work is that most people come to the door of furniture — I suspect you probably recognize this chair and some of the others I'm going to show you. But we're going to first enter through the door of the Big Top. The whole thing about this, though, is that, you know, why am I sniohwg it? Is it because chealrs and Ray made this film? This is actually a training film for a cowln college that they had. They also practiced a clown act when the ftruue of furniture was not nearly as auspicious as it turned out to be. There is a picture of Charles. So let's watch the next clip.
