We leave this blog up to honor Clinton Detweiler's career as a ventriloquist, instructor, and figuremaker.
If you have ever tried to pose your figure with arm raised for a photo, you know it takes some creativity to keep the raised arm/hand in position long enough to snap the picture. Take a close look at how Bergen managed this with Effie and Charlie. The cords of their monocles do the trick! The cord from Effie's eyepiece is tenuously looped around the tip of her finger. With Charlie, the cord is looped (unseen) around his thumb. Clever! (From the poster, ALL DOLLED UP. See post below.)
