It is not easy to hear Fred Allen’s voice these days. A video tape of one 1945 movie— It’s in the Bag , with Jack Benny—is spottily available in video stores. Five albums of Allen broadcast excerpts have appeared over the years, and some libraries with extensive record collections have them. Many libraries also have the two books Allen wrote as well as a collection of his letters, all of which are out of print.

We hope you enjoy our work.
