He's been tracking them and dedicating a page on his website (thewvsr.

If you were going to follow John Facenda on the air, you had to have a great voice. Maybe nobody could match the legendary Facenda, whose familiar baritone was called the "voice of God" when he broadcast for NFL Films. But Jeff Kaye brought it off. After Facenda died in 1984, Kaye became one of the voices of NFL Films, lending his own sonorous baritone to the pro-football documentary features of the Mount Laurel, N.J.-based company. Maybe not quite God, but close to it. "I can say to this day, when I look at some of the shows Jeff narrated over the years, I am still fascinated by the way he told a story," said Kevin McLoughlin, director of post-production for NFL Films.

Regarding Roger Hurst's uninformed reaction to Tim Lucas' remarks about Rhino Home Video's Elvira releases (Letters, Dec. 11): The truth is, film buffs and collectors are the main audience for these ignored-by-the-mainstream horror films of the '50s. Having Elvira's face superimposed over one-quarter of the screen, cracking insipid jokes, is an insult to the viewer as well as to the film. JEFF McKAY Los Angeles

Fashion-savvy students are taking their athletic shoes (primarily white Vans and Converse models) to shoe repair shops and asking for more sole. "It's the going fad this year.

Billie Dawn, the dumb broad in "Born Yesterday," is so impossible to separate from Judy Holliday, even 44 years after the comedy opened, that any actress essaying the role deserves a salute before the curtain goes up.
