BLACK FURY / NOWHERE TO RUN (1987)

Those two short films took nearly five years to complete and really wore me out. It seemed like a tremendous amount of time and stress to give over to short films, so I decided to tackle a feature. My friend Eric Whittington and I wrote a screenplay about messed up kids in a bleak urban environment....

Re: THE TWISTED CORRIDOR (1982)

Thank you Ark and ChiO; this one is near and dear to me, mainly because there were so many problems that cropped up on a daily basis. It was also a very challenging time for me personally, with more distractions than were really needed at the time. And thank you too, Maven! Compared to the first fil...

THE TWISTED CORRIDOR (1982)

So here comes my second movie: THE TWISTED CORRIDOR, completed in 1982. I'd been
reading a lot of Woolrich at the time and perhaps it shows.

Re: BLIND ALLEY (1981)

Great to see you finally uploading this... sez Mr. Ark. I'm pretty bereft of computer skills beyond the simplest tasks, and I kept resisting, but finally caved when tech savvy friends came to the rescue! I'm strictly analog! I loved your actors, both spot on type...or so sez Jack Favell. I got luck...

BLIND ALLEY (1981)

After much procrastination I've finally managed to upload some of the short films I made in the 1980s onto YouTube. I thought I'd share the first of them with you here, on the film noir thread. This is BLIND ALLEY , a 12-minute noir short film I completed back in 1981. I hope you enjoy it. BLIND ALL...

Yes, I think this show should be a wild success, given the public's ongoing fascination with lascivious pre-code entertainment!
