Too delightful, too odd, and too fun to not put this up.
From 1982, this was a short film by UCLA filmstudent Tamar Simon Hoffs. Originally Ben Gazara was slated to play the role of a businessman stopping in for a quick haircut, as his daughter was helping produce the film and also working on the crew. He turned out to have a conflicting schedule, so then suggested to his friend John Cassavetes that he take over the part. To Tamar’s surprise, JC said ‘ok’ and told her, “I’m yours for twenty-four hours. Till the limo picks me up and takes me back to the studio.”
What transpired is an inspired bit of off-the-cuff moments, captured and reconfigured into a pretty surreal series of events.
Also, lookout for a pre-version of The Bangles called ‘The Bangs’.
