One Friday afternoon sometime in the mid-1980's , Professor Pollner returned to us some VHS tapes that he'd used in his class that week. They were checked in as usual and during that process we noticed something was amiss.

I called his office the following Monday to thank him for his prompt return of our materials, as this was not always the case. I then mentioned that he might want to come back later that day and pick up the one labelled "Leslie Pollner's Bat Mitzvah" since I was certain he'd be wanting to keep that one.

I can still hear him laughing....
