Video with Richie Strell, the seltzer siphon king

Mel Stuart, the director of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, made this video for a TV show which was never to be. This segment takes us into the home of Richie Strell, the seltzer siphon king. Although this show was never produced, Richie has a copy and was generous enough to share it with me so I could share it with all of you. Richie gave me a fantastic interview which is central to the segment in my book on the history of, and current interest in, the seltzer siphon. I am glad to be able to share this, as Richie such an interesting and knowledgeable person.
