    “FOUND IT!!! - Grey Owl's first film appearance - and thats (3rd) wife Anahero (Gertrude Bernard) not (2nd wife) Angele. The second film Beaver Family is at this site as well... The 1936 film "Grey Owl's Strange Guests" is currently at Go to the CBC archives to view excerpt of 1971 documentary with more stunning footage + older Anahero recalling their adventures......” — Ukulele, 3 Dec 2010
