Personal Quote:

On the French comedy Little Indian, Big City (1994) ("Little Indian, Big City"): If the missing reel had been footage from Orson Welles 'The Magnificent Ambersons,' this whole experience would still have sucked. (When Gene & Roger went to see this movie, the entire third reel was missing. They saw the rest a week later.) See more »

While at Yale, he often dressed as Batman and paid people surprise visits. He was able to keep his identity secret for a week. See more »
