The Specialist

I’d like to thank Lou Keister for tipping me off to the vaudevillian Charles 'Chic' Sale and his book The Specialist about a fellow named Lem Putt, whose specialty is building outhouses. This work appears to be the inspiration for E. L. Moore’s outhouse builds. I need to buy a copy of the book, but in the meantime have a look at this charming – and very well preserved - 1966 film based on the book made by Heald-Sampson and starring Bernard Miles as Lem.
