Can’t-believe-your-eyes authenticity of film is found in Her Nephews from Labrador, a lighthearted story as a vehicle for two New Rochelle residents, Billy Noel and Ed Brady. They were locally famous for the antics they portray here without stunt doubles and without any deception—ice skating in their bathing suits and swimming in an icy pond in New Rochelle’s Hudson Park.
