But that is exactly what happened with a piece of film he came across while shopping at an antique store in Rockville, Indiana – looking for décor for his movie-themed basement. He fired up the film, which featured Carol Audrey Schultz – born Feb. 25, 1939 – as a baby, right there with her birth announcement.
