Unfortunately, it's not current.

Just got back from The Lot in West Hollywood where we interviewed Joe Dante. After we got done, I mentioned to him that I would love to interview his friend John Landis, as well. He said he would email him for me right then and there.

When I got home, I had an email from John Landis asking me about the project! Networking, folks.

An American Werewolf in London is my favourite werewolf picture, and I have an appointment to interview its director, John Landis in a couple weeks for the 4E doc.

Hooray! Doug, does Forry appear in that movie? (I know I saw him in a movie once, but couldn't remember which one.)

"Favourite" is a good word - if you're British.

No, he was in the other werewolf picture from 1981, The Howling. But he has been in mulitudinous fillums.

He just compleated his latest part in my friend Joe Moe's movie Red Velvet. In fact, it was at the Red Velvet table he was signing at FangoCon recently.

...directed by John Landis.

Forry tells this story in the doc. I'm going to ask JL to tell it too.

Just got off the phone with John Landis, and I have an appointment to interview him Wednesday morning in his Beverly Hills home for the 4E doc.

I'll finally get my American Werewolf signed. And my Beverly Hills Cop 3. And my MOH: Deer Woman. And my Kentucky Fried Movie. You get the idea - he's a busy director. Who saw his episode of the NBC series Fear Itself a couple weeks ago? And the following week was a Stuart Gordon episode - chilling!

John Landis sends his best wishes. He sure provided some wonderful 4E stories.

He told of the time that he took Spielberg over to the Ackermansion for his first visit.

He also told about when 4E showed up at the initial screening of Landis's Schlock, he said he brought Ed Wood with him. Landis was agog at the great cult icon, but Ed was compleatly flummoxed that anyone even remembered his films!

He was by then, remembered Landis, a sad old drunk who would be dead in a few years. Drunk maybe, but he still made Plan Nine From Outer Space!

As a bonus, I got a call from Camden Toy who said he was free and we could go by to interview him, so off we went to the Hollywood Hills. A twofer!

Furthermore, Landis said that he would put me in touch with three or four folks I've been wanting, but had no contact for: Frank Darabont, Rick Baker, Ray Harryhausen, and Hugh Hefner. I was unaware that Hugh and 4E were close but Landis says yes.

This message has been edited. Last edited by: Doug Spaulding,

Speaking of John Landis, Saturday, before the lecture, I was telling Ray that I had just interviewed him for the 4E thingy, and he said that he hasn't talked to Landis in awhile, and for me to ask him to give him a call.

So dutifully, I emailed John and passed on Ray's request. Received a reply a few hours later saying that he was in London, but was flying home the next day, and he would call Ray this week. When I initially emailed him for he interview request (a few weeks ago), he said he was in Paris. He said soon he's off to Vancouver, and then NYC and then Italy.

He sure racks up some frequent flyer miles!

Now for my 4E story. It's short, but good. Saturday morning, jkt and I were at 4E's coordinating a potential Halloween event (I'm sure jkt will post the flyer when the time is right), and 4E was going to sign some photos for the two Rays. As he was reclining at the time, jkt had to adjust the chair with the remote control. He couldn't quite tell which button was the right one to push, and as he was trying to figure it out, 4E exclaimed "don't push the wrong one - you'll blow me up!"

He's still got it.
