Hi Kris-
The Chief showed me a copy of the Denver teleconference vid; you have a
future in pictures dahling if you ever decide to ditch information
science.

At any rate, re: the folklore on film- this might be getting a little off
track but many of the X-files episodes are now on video (of course this
television and not film). You instructor might find them useful as an
example where one genre of folklore (UFO's) pokes fun at all the other
genres: they get the LochNess Monster, Big Foot, the Kennedy
assasination, et al.

Also,I recall seeing something recently on the Kennedy assasination.
But I think it may have been A&E and under a broader heading of something
like "America's Worst Killers"and it also covered Bobby Kennedy's assasination
and others.

Good Luck!
