NotesAdditional text on glass negative: ROUND THE KREMLIN IN 80 SECONDS It is announced that
somebody called Mike Todd has announced that somebody called Mike Todd and someone called Liz
Taylor are going on a mission to Moscow. This is great news for the Russians who never dreamed
that their call for high-level meetings would achieve anything as high-level as Mike Todd. But
they must have felt just a little tiny bit hurt at his remark: "Liz will rock Moscow ... She
would undermine the whole economy there except she won't be staying long. There's nothing to
buy." Come, Mr. Todd. We seem to remember reading somewhere that the Russians have produced one
or two commodities lately which, so far, even Mike Todd, the United States, and the rest of us
have been unable to manufacture.
