    i'm looking forward to it - he was an excellent writer - and, as someone whose profession was theatre, and someone who also has directed, i "saw" everything your dad wrote as it unfolded in his words.

    thank you for bringing it here!

      I was going to be an actor.

      My first diary is about that.

      When I read it I saw a whole movie.
      Directed by Martin Scorcese.

      I went on to produce and direct some local theatre for several years in Santa Barbara. Mostly worked as a tech director tho, only thing that paid.

      I have a bunch of VHS tapes if you can watch that I'll send one for free. Message me your address. be glad to share the full script with you too. I want to get this out there. My Dad's and the workers legacy. A story that needs to be kept alive.

      no man is completely worthless, he can always be used as a bad example.
