29. As in every good story, we now turn to Henry's dream sequence. Actually, Henry says this about that: "Tom Cruise (alias Henry) on the "Fair Star" enjoying Roman Night with 3 of his then concubines (whose names escape me as no doubt my name escapes them)".

30. Henry Burstyner and Harry Stuart shared an apartment in this wonderful city for over 2 years. Please don't ask how. The wild and crazy guys were caught nightclubbing on this occasion.

34. Evie Katz (Skall) and Ina (Klein) with the Jerusalem hills as a back-drop.

35. 1970 Amsterdam - outside flat of Ina Klein's parents. John Goldlust and Henry Burstyner cross paths again. Henry was in Europe after several years in North America and John and Ina were visiting Ina's parents on their way from Israel to Canada.

40. Henry and Harry lived together in Toronto in the late 1960s. That's when they posed for the first of 4 photos which we have updated at regular intervals of 20 or 2 years, whichever was convenient. One of the limiting factors in putting this series together seems to be that they both had to be there.

44. Henry made this birthday card for Judy Weinstein z"l (Skall) on her 50th birthday. Left to right: Giuseppe Verde (Joe Green - living in the States); David Lurie (famous local lawyer); Dr. Harry Imber and in the centre, of course, Judy Skall.
