- I've met such celebrities as Mrs. Buster Keaton,
Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Leonard Maltin, James Karen, Kenneth Mars, Gaylord
Carter, Edie Adams, and Dan Kamin. Film historians I have met are Kevin
Brownlow, Russell Merritt, Bruce Lawton, David Shepard, John C. Tibbetts, and
Wichita film notables, J.B. Kaufman, Jim Erickson, Bill Shaffer in Topeka
Kansas, Brittany Valente of Novi Michigan, and Paul Girrucki of Cinemuseum,
- My special interest is the film period 1888-1935. D.W.
Griffith's The Birth of a Nation (1915) is my favorite film, and I
believe that Griffith is the finest director in film history. His
Intolerance (1916), Broken Blossoms (1919) and Way Down
East (1920) still amaze and thrill audiences today.
- I have worked as a production assistant in Kansas on
My Name is Legend with Duke Kelly, and watched the Long Beach,
California filming of Robert Mitchum's Farewell My Lovely (1975). I have
attended all twenty-three Keaton Film Festivals in Iola, Kansas, and sixteen
silent film festivals in Topeka, Kansas, plus the Parsons, Kansas ZaSu Pitts
Festival in April 1998 and 1999.
- I have spent many hours researching film history and
am currently looking for work in the film industry.
- I am available for film festivals or lectures.
have given a lecture at Georgetown Retirement Village in Wichita, KS on "The
Silent Film: A Lost Art"
