Uncle Fun: You're The One

• Film
'Uncle Fun: You're The One' is a loving and nostalgia-filled documentary about the late iconic Chicago novelty and toy store 'Uncle Fun' and the man behind it, Ted Frankel. Made by first-time filmmaker Laura Scruggs, the film explores how the store began (as well as the store before it, Goodies), what the Uncle Fun store and Frankel have meant over the years to many devoted customers, Ted's unexpected tragedy, the closing of the store and other fun stores around the country that Uncle Fun inspired. The film explores Frankel's current life as founder and operator of Sideshow, the gift shop at The American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. Uncle Fun is a story about being happy, being yourself, following your heart, and having hope. Running time: 60 min.
