Cultural History and Arts

In this archive of full-length interviews (30-120 mins), historic movie pioneers tell their stories and relate film history from new perspectives.

I started shooting these interviews in the early 1990's in association with documentarian Ross Hawkins to preserve first-hand accounts of the movie business as told by Douglas Fairbanks Jr,, Daniel Selznick, Roger Mayer - and other names that you won't recognize, like David O. Selznick's chauffeur, Eddie Mannix's personal secretary, some of the Our Gang kids and Stan Laurel's daughter.

Of course there are also interviews with marquee names as well, like Red Skelton, Leslie Caron, Anita Page, director Richard Rush. These stories reflect personal, first-hand experiences in the film industry spanning from the silent era to the 1990's.
