ROYAL AMERICAN

Documentary
A discarded Royal Typewriter from the 1930s is picked up from a trash heap and taken to a repair shop in the Flatiron Building. The subsequent letters written and the responses received, including one from President Clinton, makes this a magical typewriter, one that wistfully questions obsolescence.
