THE DIRECTOR'S SERIES
Ira Gallen 2nd Unit Director with Director Chuck Bail on The Gumball Rally 1976
In Memory of Tab Hunter
In the 1950s, Tab Hunter is number one at the box office and number one on the music charts. He is Hollywood's most sought-after star and America's boy next door. Natalie Wood, Debbie Reynolds and Sophia Loren are just a few of the actresses he is romantically linked to. Nothing, it seems, can damage Tab Hunter's career. Nothing, that is, except for the fact that Tab Hunter is secretly gay. Click to download Tab Hunter Confidential at Amazon.com
I was lucky to have had Tab Hunter hanging out at my apartment in 1988 talking about his latest film Cameron's Closet and his career. All I can say is that he was a class act, and he will be missed.

On Location with Director Sydney Pollack and Tootise 1983 Part 2: Closing scene and the Mail.
I first met Sydney Pollack on 3 Days of the Condor, 1975 as a production assistant. We almost got together on Electric Horseman to write a book on his film career, but that's another story.
When he came to New York making Tootsie he let me shoot a behind the scenes look at the making of the film. It was also the first time Sydney and his Director of Photography Owen Roizman were using video playback on his sets.

Ron Cobb is an American cartoonist, artist, writer, film designer, and film director. By the age of 18, with no formal training in graphic illustration, Cobb was working as an animation "in-betweener" artist for Disney Studios in Burbank, California. He progressed to becoming a breakdown artist on the animation feature Sleeping Beauty (1959). (This was the last Disney film to have cels inked by hand.)
In 1981, Colorvision, a large-format, full-colour monograph appeared, including much of his design work for the films Star Wars (1977), Alien (1979), and Conan the Barbarian (1982), the first feature for which he received the credit of Production Designer. Cobb has also contributed production design to the films The Last Starfighter (1984), Leviathan (1989), Total Recall (1990), True Lies (1994), The Sixth Day (2000), Cats & Dogs (2001), Southland Tales (2006), and the Australian feature Garbo, which he directed. Cobb contributed the initial story for Night Skies, an earlier, darker version of E.T..
