Last month Candy Clark, who played Debbie in "Graffiti," was gracious enough to spend a little bit of her time talking with me. I video taped both her and Bo Hopkins talking about their roles in "Graffiti" at the Sacramento Autorama on Feb 12, 2011. I was thrilled but when I got to my hotel room to watch the video I discovered there was no tape in the camera. I felt so stupid and was so angry. Both Candy and Bo were so considerate to spend time talking to me and I didn't even get it on tape. And, it was especially a good conversation with Candy 'cause she was blowing kisses into the camera!
I went back to the Autorama the following day with my friend, Toby and explained to Candy what had happened. She laughed and was happy to let Toby (who knew to put tape in the camera) and I record another discussion on the film. Candy is a strikingly good-looking woman, a fantastic conversationalist, and "self-starter" needing few prompts to speak about the film and her role in it. I recorded a conversation with Paul Lemat after her but never did get to talk to Bo afterwards. Oh, well, next time... BTW: You can see Bo & Paul Lemat goofing around in the background as Candy is speaking. The tape begins with 15 seconds of the original Milner's coupe that was on display at the Autorama.

As promised, here is some of the video captured from my recent trip to the SACRAMENTO AUTORAMA last Feb. 11-13, 2011. Actor, Paul LeMat who played John Milner spoke with me for about an hour about many things including his role in "Graffiti." Let me just say, Paul is a down-to-earth, friendly guy, with a wonderful sense of humor. He was more than willing to share his views about the craft of acting and how he prepares himself for the various roles he's played throughout his acting career. I've edited the video down to 20 minutes that deal specifically with his starring role in "Graffiti." At some point I may post the rest but for now... Feel free to share your comments with us about the interview.
Damn, you're lucky to get all this quality entertainment for free!!
