> So there was the remains of Warners' very large machine, but I
don't think it had anything to do with Big Ben.
I was, of course, only quoting hearsay, so it is quite likely that
the Big Ben bit was added by someone at Gillett's to embellish the
story. Wally maintained that Warners hoped they'd get the job of
recasting Mears' Big Ben after it cracked. As Warner's records are
lost, we shall probably never know!
