Len Silverfine Thinks Not Just Big but Colossal—from Flags to Football Game Card Stunts
Silverfine, a onetime account executive and college lecturer, said he was delighted. Soon he hopes to persuade Revlon, which filmed part of the extravaganza for an Olympics commercial, to help underwrite another Great American Flag Project. The huge Stars and Stripes, like its ill-fated predecessor, would be displayed next July 4 at the entrance to New York Harbor as a tribute to Silverfine's father and millions of other immigrants. It will be reinforced with steel and nylon ropes and will be 20 percent larger than the Bicentennial failure. The new flag will cost $300,000, and though Silver-fine hasn't yet lined up backers, he's not worried. "I haven't felt this good," he announced after his triumph in Los Angeles, "since the morning of June 28, 1976."
