1959 in England, 1960 in USA, and I found one reference to '61. Is 49 years not old enough?

If that's the case, I apologize.

Whew! I thought I would have to dredge up 10 more clues. The team leader (in the sewers in his

tux) is Jack Hawkins. The multi-Oscar man is Richard Attenborough. The "Argonauts" and "required reading" clues refer to the fact that the organizer sent each prospect a copy of a novel entitled The Golden Fleece, about "a group of American gangsters" and a well-organized bank heist. He asked them to read it before meeting with him at a fancy restaurent.

He also sent each man a cut-in-half 5-pound bank note, promising them the other half if they showed up. They were all in such a position that this was an effective lure.

 

Metry Road, its yours.

Patience is a virtue. Good things come to those who wait.

 

2. Some aerial views of New York and some wooden ships.

No, not 'Just Imagine'. But thank you Metz for bringing this movie to my attention. I checked it out at IMDB. A campy, Art-Deco SciFi musical. Jeez, they don't make 'em like that anymore, and I don't think they ever did. What a unique antique, Busby Berkeley meets 'Things To Come' and 'Metropolis'.

 

3. Freedom from traffic jams would be a good start.

It's Norbell. How are you, nice to hear from you again. At last, a foeman worthy of my steel.
