The Great Man’s Whiskers

The Great Man’s Whiskers (1973) (aka The Grate Mans Wiskurs) Yip’s last movie project, filmed in 1969 but not shown until 1973. Based on a one-act play by formerly blacklisted writer Adrian Scott, it is based on the true story of a little girl who wrote to President Lincoln urging him to grow a beard. Yip and Earl Robinson contributed two songs to this NBC-TV production : “Wilderness Man,” sung at various points by Harve Presnell and “Things That Go Bump in the Night,” sung by Isabel Sanford. Not commercially available.
