The Story as it happened and what the book is all about
A crazy casting call, a twelve-hour wait and a whole bunch of patience was all it took to land a major role in a multi-million dollar studio film.
The nineteen-week production and working side-by-side with Rock Hudson, Ernie Borgnine, Patrick McGoohan, Tony Bill and Jim Brown, turned out to be only part of the exciting journey.
Working on the film as a young actor/wannabe filmmaker, I received the education of a lifetime.
All actors know about the downtime, the hours when you’re not in front of the cameras, and like everyone else I looked for something to do.
In choosing to assist the producers and the world famous director and editor with every free moment I had, time and effort became a very special gift.
These precious moments also gave me the opportunity to see a completely different side of Rock Hudson.
His generosity changed my outlook of helping strangers and altered my life forever.
