With the recent sad demise of Movie Boulevard, run by Robert Wood & Richard Jolley for many years, we thought visitors to this site might be interested to see the newsletters issued as part of the John Barry Appreciation Society, which preceded the mail-order business and shop.

Obviously some of the news subsequently turned out not to be correct but bear in mind this was well before the internet and for many it was the *only* way of getting any news about John Barry.
