"First there was prostitution. Then carving."
- On the second oldest profession 

The Stone Carvers: Fetter, Frank A. (Frank Albert), 1863-1949 here.

Amidst the gargoyles of Washington (D.C.) Cathedral, some of the last remaining Italian-American stone carvers demonstrate their traditional skills and exchange lively stories about their customs and work experiences. Shows that from the Gothic cathedrals of Europe to the beaux-arts skyscrapers of New York, these carvers have brought enduring beauty to the environment. Directed and produced by Marjorie Hunt and Paul Wagner. Blue Ribbon winner, American Film Festival, and Academy Award winner.
