What’s your favorite film of 2016?
It would have to be “Jason Bourne” starring Matt Damon. I always like a great car chase or two.
What film would you like to see remade as an LGBT film?
Perhaps “The Women” 1939 or “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” 1954. Either one would be fun.
What’s the last series you binge watched?
I watched a half-dozen, vintage James Bond movies a few year's ago. He’s my favorite movie character.
Who is your dream celebrity date?
Humm. Would have to be Eartha Kitt. I always had a fun adventure with her. Some 20 years ago, we both visited the former Beverly Hills property she had owned, after she had sold it and moved to the East Coast. She was in Los Angeles and performing at the Cinegrill at the Roosevelt Hotel; and I was staying with her as an unregistered guest.
So, we’re outside, in my car, at this red brick compound on La Collina Drive. Like a cat, she scurries over the red, brick wall and proceeds “to borrow” some fresh lemon and orange branches with blossoms to brighten up her hotel suite with. Looking back, this situation might be construed as breaking-and-entering, she as the burglar and I as driver and lookout guy.
Just another afternoon with Earth Kitt in the City of Angels.
Who would play you in a movie?
I think Derek Villnueva would do me justice. Don’t you?
What film are you embarrassed to say you’ve never seen?
“Gone with the Wind.” But, I’ve see the Carol Burnett spoof a dozen times.
What are you looking forward to at this year’s Reel Pride Film Festival?
Showcasing our community’s diversity, and ensuring that all members’ feel a sense of sincere and honest inclusion is very important to the board and to me. With 50 LGBTQ+ films screened throughout five days, there will surely be something for everyone.
