HOUSTON, July 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The One World Doll Project, subsidiary of One World Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:OWOO), announced today it is partnering with Bern Nadette Stanis, celebrated star of the hit 70's TV show, Good Times, to create a collectors doll in the likeness of her character, Thelma.
"With Sony Pictures' recent announcement of its plans to release a Goo d Times feature film we feel this is the perfect time for One World Dolls to be partnering with the legendary actress who played one of the show's most memorable characters.
