The graphic shown above was the heading for a book review in today’s Sun-Times. There’s a very short list of you who will do the same double-take I did. That review title – “Dial P for Pervert” – was precisely the title of a short film that Ed G., Margie K., and I made in the late 1970s.
Now I’ll grant you, our film was written and performed within a few hours’ time and recorded for posterity on Super 8 (silent) film, plus which it never played at a theater near you – or near anyone else, for that matter. And I’m not really pitching a bitch about intellectual property, but if you’re on that short list to which I referred earlier, I hope this gave you a smile!
btw, I must report with considerable pride that I myself played the role of the pervert. And that’s why they call it acting.
