Ed Smith entrusted me with a bunch of his papers, including a few union newsletters he edited in the 1960s.
The September 1964 newsletter has a page featuring Stars And Stripes Forever, a big commercial in its day.
The studio was then "engaged in producing a feature film, 'Howie'". "Howie", as far as I can tell, was never produced. There must be hundreds of films melting away in Fresh Kills that have their own unique stories to tell.
