Nelson Lyon

After making his only feature film The Telephone Book (1971), Nelson LYON moved to Los Angeles and eventually became a writer for Saturday Night Live. The negative of his one and only feature film seemed to be lost or destroyed. In 2009 a pristine print turned up overseas thanks to the efforts of two European partners of The Telephone Book's producer Merv Bloch. The production company Hello Film made a digital master and put together a DVD box-set of the film.
