Marc Platt

One of Hollywood's more high-flying dancers on film, dimpled, robust, fair-haired Marc Platt provided fancy footwork to a handful of "Golden Era" musicals but truly impressed in one vigorous 1950s classic.

Born to a musical family on December 2, 1913 in Pasadena, California as Marcel Emile Gaston LePlat, he was the only child of a French-born concert violinist and a soprano singer. After years on the road, the family finally settled in Seattle, Washington. Following his father's death, his mother found a job at the Mary Ann Wells' dancing school while young Marc earned his keep running errands at the dance school. He eventually became a dance student at the school and trained with Wells for eight years who saw great potential in Marc.

It was Wells who arranged an audition for Marc with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo when the touring company arrived in Seattle. The artistic director Léonide Massine accepted him at $150 a week and changed his name to Marc Platoff in order to maintain the deception that the company was Russian. A highlight was his dancing as the Spirit of Creation in Massine's legendary piece "Seventh Symphony". Platt also choreographed during his time there, one piece being Ghost Town (1939), which was set to music by Richard Rodgers. While there he met and married (in 1942) dancer Eleanor Marra. They had one son before divorcing in 1947. Ted Le Plat, born in 1944, became a musician as well as a daytime soap and prime-time TV actor.

Anxious to try New York, Marc left the ballet company in 1942 and moved to the Big Apple where he changed his marquee name to the more Americanized "Marc Platt" and pursued musical parts. Following minor roles in the short run musicals "The Lady Comes Across" (January, 1942) with Joe E. Lewis, Mischa Auer and Gower Champion and "Beat the Band" (October-December, 1942) starring Joan Caulfield, Marc and Kathryn Sergava found themselves cast in a landmark musical, the Rodgers and Hammerstein rural classic "Oklahoma!" Choreographer Agnes de Mille showcased them in the ground-breaking extended dream sequence roles of (Dream) Curly and (Dream) Laurey. Platt stayed with the show for a year but finally left after Columbia Pictures signed him to a film contract.

Aside from a couple of short musical films, he made his movie feature debut with a featured role as Tommy in Tonight and Every Night starring Rita Hayworth. From there he appeared in the Sid Caesar vehicle Tars and Spars and back with Rita Hayworth in Down to Earth. Columbia tried Marc out as a leading man in one of their second-string musicals When a Girl's Beautiful opposite Adele Jergens and Patricia Barry but did not make a great impression. Featured again in the non-musical adventure The Swordsman starring Ellen Drew and Larry Parks and the Italian drama _Addio Mimi! (1949) based on Puccini's "La Boheme," Marc's film career dissipated.

After appearing on occasional TV variety shows such as "The Ed Sullivan Show" and "The Colgate Comedy Hour" and following a single return to Broadway in the musical "Maggie" (1953, Platt returned to film again after a five-year absence but when he finally did, he made a superb impression as one of Howard Keel's uncouth but vigorously agile woodsman brothers (Daniel) in MGM's Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. The film still stands as one of the most impressive dancing pieces of the "Golden Age" of musicals. He followed this with a minor dancing role (it was James Mitchell who played Dream Curly here) in the film version of Oklahoma!.

When the musical film lost favor in the late 1950's, Marc finished off the decade focusing on straight dramatic roles on TV with roles in such rugged series as "Sky King," "Wyatt Earp" and "Dante". By the 1960s Marc had taken off his dance shoes and turned director of the ballet company at New York's Radio City Music Hall. He and his second wife, Jean Goodall, whom he married back in 1951 and had two children (Donna, Michael), also ran a dance studio of their own. Following this they left New York and moved to Fort Myers, Florida where they set up a new dance school.

Marc moved to Northern California to be near family following his wife's death in 1994 and occasionally appeared at the Marin Dance Theatre in San Rafael. One of his last performances was a non-dancing part in "Sophie and the Enchanted Toyshop" at age 89. In 2000, Marc was presented with the Nijinsky Award at the Ballets Russe's Reunion. He appeared in the 2005 documentary Ballets Russes. Platt died at the age of 100 at a hospice in San Rafael from complications of pneumonia. He was survived by his three children.

Rod Lauren

Rod Lauren was born Roger Lawrence Strunk in Fresno, California, on March 20, 1940. He moved with his parents to Tracy, California, when he was three. Father Larry Strunk was a schoolteacher who subsequently found work as a switchman for the Southern Pacific Railroad; his mother was also a teacher and a church organist. While attending Tracy High School, Roger appeared in school plays and played the trombone in the high school band. Graduating in 1957, he began singing in local clubs in Tracy.

A recording executive was taken by his easy vocal style that differed significantly from the popular rock 'n' roll genre. The exec gambled with it, offered the teen an audition and Roger ended up winning an RCA recording contract. He took on the professional name of Rod Lauren. The fledgling singer appeared on both Ed Sullivan and Dick Clark's variety showcases between 1959 and 1960 and earned a mild hit along the way (#31 on the Billboard chart) with "If I Had a Girl" in 1960. However, with the British invasion, his singing career fell away. Fortunately, Rod had a dark, sulky, greaser-type appeal that recalled the rebel in Fabian and, with that look, he started to find acting jobs on TV. He also earned singing work in Vegas and Southern California lounge clubs on the sly.

In 1963 alone Rod made six films, all of them low-budget in nature but a couple that found cult infamy. In the cheapjack shocker Terrified he is one of a group of college students trapped in a ghost town with a masked psychopathic killer. In Black Zoo it is veteran actor Michael Gough who imperils Lauren's life as a demented animal owner who triggers his caged pets to attack. The third horror flick is his best known, The Crawling Hand, in which the hand of a deceased astronaut comes to life and wreaks havoc. Other genres mixed in were party flicks such as The Young Swingers and the mediocre oaters The Gun Hawk and Law of the Lawless.

Following isolated appearances on Gomer Pyle: USMC and Combat!, Lauren's film career pretty much dissolved. His last film appearance was in director John Derek's Childish Things (aka "The Confessions of Tom Harris"), which starred Derek's then-wife Linda Evans. The film was made in 1966 but not released until three years later.

In 1964 Lauren went to the Philippines for the filming of Once Before I Die, and while there met Nida Blanca, a then-rising Filipino film star. He shuttled back and forth between the Philippines and Southern California for over a decade before finally marrying Ms. Blanca in 1979. He then took permanent residence in Manila. Ms. Blanca was a star in the Philippines comparable to Doris Day or Debbie Reynolds. Rod functioned as his wife's escort as his own career dissipated.

His last years were like a bad horror story. On November 6, 2001, wife Nida was viciously stabbed to death in a parking garage. In November of 2003 Rod (who had long returned to his real name of Roger Strunk) was to be charged with her murder after authorities claimed he hired an assassin to kill his wife who had threatened to divorce and disinherit him. In an example of the dysfunctional Manila justice system, authorities allowed Rod to return to the U.S. before charges could be filed against him. Claiming his mother, who lived back in Tracy, California, was dying of cancer and he needed to be with her, he managed to resist extradition and resettled in Tracy.

The former actor found employment as a camera operator for the city of Tracy's public-access station, Channel 26. The pressures of the ongoing investigation, however, finally took its toll and he ended it all on July 11, 2007, by jumping to his death from a second-floor motel balcony in Tracy. He was 67.

Andrew G. Ogleby

Andrew is a Spotlight registered, English actor, known for Holmes and Watson (2018), Justice League (2017), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) among others. Born in the late 1960's to parents Donald and Valerie Ogleby, his home town the then Motor City of Coventry was something of a boomtown at the time (following the devastation it had experienced during the heavy bombing raids of WW2) with its football club Coventry City also gaining promotion to the top-flight of English football, the same year of Andrew's birth.

By the time Andrew left school however, Coventry had turned more into the 'Ghost Town' so poignantly portrayed in song at the time by its most famous band The Specials. Although the mood in the city would later improve when Coventry City F.C went onto win the F.A Cup in 1987 in what many still regard as the greatest Cup Final played in modern times. After leaving school in 1983, Andrew would certainly then have had no aspirations to be involved in film though, for that would surely have been considered something only 'other' people did. However, due to his love of classic film comedy such as Laurel and Hardy and satirical British humour, he had always wanted to become a comedian and could impersonate some of the personalities of the time. But that was soon drummed out of him at secondary school and then later with the need to find a 'real' job and earn money.

Fast forward though to 2013, and a 'chance' meeting with the film producer Sharon Rapose at a business event at the O2 London, where Andrew would later be offered the opportunity (and appear) in the short romantic comedy 'Konnichiwa Brick Lane' (2013) by Saera Jin. Following which, this then rekindled the idea of becoming a comedian, and so he began writing short sketches, with the idea of trying his hand at stand-up.

Then in the summer of 2014, whilst absently minding his own business at a community festival, Andrew was offered, 'out of the blue' by the head of Global Fusion Music & Arts (a local charitable arts based organisation) the opportunity to appear in an original play 'All About the Boys' by one of its members, playwright Robert Fanshawe, about the WWI poet Wilfred Owen and his final battle scene. Andrew would then go onto play one of its main characters, that of Private 'Jacko' Jackson, portraying the classic ironic humour of the British Tommy.

After which, this then lead Andrew to attend an acting course at The London Theatre and play other stage roles, before being inspired to write a play of his own 'Troubled meets the Troubadour' a bittersweet musical comedy, which he was to also direct and perform in. Andrew has since also completed a 7 week run playing Chief Dogberry in the Fox and Chips production of Shakespeare's comedy 'Much Ado About Nothing' as well as playing Private Jackson again at The Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury to mark Armistice Day (2016). Andrew has also recently written the script and songs for a full-length pantomime, as well as having writing another short play commenting on social issues which he is also looking to put on and perform in soon. Moreover, Andrew plans to continue writing and taking on other such interesting and challenging stage roles in the future.

In terms of film, Andrew initially signed up with various agencies to take on acting roles and supporting artiste work. During this time he has gone onto work on major feature films, including acting double roles for main actors in Holmes and Watson (2018), The Commuter (2017) and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) as well as also working on TV dramas and in many other short independent films. Andrew also has an avid interest in martial arts/boxing films, having trained in the fighting/healing arts for over 25 years and with experience of stage combat, which he is now able to bring to the screen as well. Similarly, Andrew plans to also continue bringing this wide experience into further acting roles and take on larger parts to become fully established himself.

At present, there are many varied and exciting opportunities coming up for Andrew to allow this to happen. Furthermore, as a result of all his endeavours, Andrew was also recently accepted on Spotlight and is now listed with them. So the future is looking bright for this hard working, dependable and highly versatile observational, physical/comedic actor and writer, who is also able to bring aspects of his wide, life experiences and heightened emotional observations into his work. So please, do watch this space...

Betsy Burke

Betsy Ruth Burke was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to John A. Burke, an inventor and Great Lakes Historian who was educated by Jesuit Monks, and Gizela Anne (Kovach), a Hungarian beauty with a deep love of animals and nature. Betsy's feature film script, Season of Starlings, is in development. As a child, Betsy wrote plays to direct her siblings and cousins in. After graduating with a Writing Degree from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio, Betsy spent two years traveling around Europe, studying languages and expanding her Ohio perspective.

She lived for 11 years in San Francisco, where she gained success as a stage actress, performing at The Magic Theater, The American Conservatory Theater, The Marin Theater Company, and on many more stages. She was known as an offbeat ingénue with a talent for originating roles. She was hired at Lucas Film as the human guinea pig for "The Betsy Flier," a flying rig named after her. During this time, she was also cast in the original stage production of The House of Yes at Yale University under a special contract.

She moved to Los Angeles, where she was immediately cast in Bram Stoker's Dracula directed by Francis Ford Coppola, in a scene opposite Anthony Hopkins, which did not make the final cut. She did, however, make the final cut for the TV movie Prison of Secrets, the TV series Midnight Caller, and cult films such as Bar Girls, Sex Crimes and Femme Fontaine: Killer Babe for the CIA. It was in Los Angeles that Betsy started writing and directing both theater and film. Her first short film Rebel Rebel was accepted into the Academy Award accredited Palm Springs International Short Film Festival, and went on to many other festivals around the world including Berlin, Paris, Budapest, Montreal, and Johannesburg.

Her short film script Cowboys won production in New Mexico, and encouraged her long-standing dream to move there. Her residence in former ghost town, Madrid, New Mexico, in an 1850's authentically haunted house, has inspired her to write and direct several more short films, and pen several feature films. The treatment for her Sci-Fi TV series was shortlisted for the George RR Martin writing competition.

In "Ain't It Cool News" by Harry Knowles, Betsy was described as "...an inventive filmmaker on the verge of much bigger things... Keep your eye out for her!"

Betsy teaches a community yoga class, engages in organic gardening, sustainable living, and wild animal rescue.

Jesse Lasky Jr.

Jesse Lasky Jr. was born in the golden age of Hollywood. The son of the man who produced the film town's first feature in a barn, grew up surrounded by the greatest stars, writers, and musicians of the 1920s. After attending Dijon University in France, he returned home to Hollywood to find his world turned upside down by his father's disastrous reversal of fortune on the stock market. Young Jesse, who had already had his first book of poetry, Songs from the Heart of a Boy, published at nineteen, had always wanted to be a writer. He got a job as a lowly reader and briefly dated Jean Harlow.

Michael McGruther

Michael McGruther began his filmmaking career with the original screenplay Tigerland (2000), directed by Joel Schumacher and co-written with Ross Klavan. The critically acclaimed screenplay was nominated by IFP/West for Best First Screenplay and by the Political Film Society for the PFS Award in 2001. It is widely known as Colin Farrell's breakthrough film, garnering Farrell the Boston Society of Film Critics Best Actor Award and the London Critics Circle Film Award for British Newcomer of the year.

Envigorated by the filmmaking process while on the set of Tigerland, McGruther established Buffalonickel Films. He then teamed up with Jersey Films and Universal Studios on two features: his original science fiction adventure titled Lightspeed (with Superman Returns director Bryan Singer attached to direct), and a coming-of-age drama titled Sentenced To Nature, based on a New York Times article by author Charles Siebert.

Buffalonickel Films has since acquired the rights to several novels and short stories to produce. In 2001, Extra Life, a drama about coming-of-age in the digital world; in 2004, Arthur C. Clarke's prophetic novel Prelude to Space; and in 2005, Blood Son, based on the 1951 short story by legendary science fiction and horror writer Richard Matheson. Blood Son (2006) marks McGruther's directorial debut. He is currently in pre-production on the movie Ghost Town.

McGruther has also appeared in front of the camera, seen in several commercials and movies in the early 90s including Clockers and In & Out, and has a cameo appearance in Tigerland.

Dinos Dimopoulos

In his childhood he used to climb to the lighthouse of the nowadays ghost-town of Koprena, where he was raised, and daydream he was in a ship, sailing for distant places. His family, though, forbade a sailor's career. As things turned out, he became one of the two or three greatest film makers of the so-called golden era of the Greek cinema, the '60s. Three generations of Greeks laughed and cried with his movies. Those films are still very successful when broadcast on Greek TV. The sea is more than evident in his best known films. He had the reputation of a hard man to work with but he used to say, "making movies is a game, if we all respect its rules, we can enjoy the game, when someone breaks the rules the game is no longer amusing for the rest of the set". He spent many of the last years of his life by the sea, next to a pine forest, writing novels mostly for children.

Cambell Westmoreland

At the age of five, Cambell Westmoreland - who was born on May 28, 1996 in Moscow, Russia, and who now calls San Antonio, Texas home - started asking his mom "Why is my picture not on that sign? How old do you have to be to be on TV or in a movie?" She thought that it was just a phase, but encouraged him by signing him up for acting classes, which led to to him getting signed with an agent.

Fortunately for audiences and filmmakers alike, the phase hasn't passed, as since that time, Cambell has had the pleasure of working with such acclaimed directors as Richard Linklater (on Boyhood), Kimberly Peirce (on Stop Loss), and Robert Rodriguez (on Shorts), as well as emerging filmmakers like Bryan Ortiz (on The Big Scary German and DR. S The Movie), Carl Theil (on Drawing Closer, the Grammy nominated music producer and noted film composer's directorial debut) and award-winning filmmaker at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, Pablo Veliz (on The Boys of Ghost Town).

Cambell's credits also include commercial campaigns for Wal-Mart and Sears, a pilot for MTV, and several theatre credits. When he is not on stage or on screen, Cambell can be found on the field playing football, baseball, or soccer.

Nick Yeh

From audio, verbal to visual; from onstage storytelling, novel writing to script-writing, Nick has been a natural-born story teller since childhood. While his peers recited classics fairy tales, Nick already told stories he made up himself, and was able to attract a small circle of fans. He picked up the quill as early as age 10; by 12, growing up in the 1980s, he had begun writing a series of romance and adventure short stories inspired by Hollywood blockbusters.

At 13, Nick tried out script-writing when he, his cousin Lisa (now a medical doctor) and his sister Mindy (now a PhD in pharmaceutical sciences) formed a small radio drama group. Nick, Lisa and Mindy each assumed more than one role in the drama series. Nick eventually brought the passion with him to college, where he majored in English Literature. A heart-aching romance radio drama he wrote in college won the accolades of not only English Literature professors but also an award-winning director, who personally congratulated him on his good work. The director's encouragement drew Nick into screenwriting. Nick went on to pursue a Master's in Mental Health Counseling Psychology at Boston College and a PhD in Cultural Studies (Film Criticism, Film Marketing & Audience Psychology) at Claremont Graduate University.

At Claremont, Nick was fortunate enough to be mentored by producers Alexandra Juhasz and Ahmed Zahra, and one of his original short scripts was selected as a Finalist at the annual Lone Star Action Fest Screenplay Competition. His most recent films have been screened at numerous film festivals such as Cannes, Bonita Springs International Film Festival, Siouxland Film Festival, among a few others, and have collected a number of awards.

As a media scholar, Nick has published one article in The International Journal of the Humanities and presented numerous essays at a few international conferences.

As a result of a serious brain trauma at age 2, Nick was once aphasic and completely paralyzed on the right side of his body. He took up singing to retrieve his language ability and piano to reconstruct the movement of his right hand. Miraculously, his language ability caught up with his peers in 1 ½ years and he developed the ability of piano improvisation, which became his alternative channel for storytelling before his language ability was fully restored. The piano improvisation talent stays with him up to this day.

In his spare time, Nick loves travelling, in particular to seldom known territories. He has explored quite a few ghost towns and chronicled about the experiences. And he has been taking part in combat veteran and prisoner outreach programs.

Nick is fluent in both English and Chinese and translated a book about Chinese mental health in 2008.

Andrew Tyrrell

The son of actors Angela & Norman Tyrrell (Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre, BBC), Andrew appeared in John Boorman's 'Catch Us If You Can' (a post-'Hard Day's Night' vehicle for UK pop group The Dave Clark Five) after casting approached his father for a role. Norman couldn't make the dates, but Andrew - aged 12 and with no acting experience whatsoever - could, and somehow ended up landing the role of Louis's son.

Andrew's contribution - so central to the film that if you blinked you'd miss it - should have taken 3 days to shoot. However a spat between Dave Clark and the Assistant Director left Mr Clark with a cauliflower ear, and cast & crew sat around for four days waiting for the swelling to subside. Of course, this was great for Andrew who - on location at Tynings Farm near Cheddar, England - found himself on a proper farm (albeit one dressed to look like a Wild West ghost town), and in the company of Mr Boorman's two blonde daughters. AND being paid £3 a day!

Close observers will notice that Andrew spends most of the film sitting out of harm's way on a horse. Just as well, really: his one proper scene, with Barbara Ferris, Dave Clark & David Lodge, took 35 takes (no really!), even though he himself was the acme of professionalism and delivered his single line, 'Dad, dad - there's a bloke and a lady to see you!', perfectly every time.

However it was clear that his parents' talent for drama had somehow sidestepped Andrew, settling instead on his sister, Kate. Andrew's real passion has always been music, first as a player (7 years as Principal Percussionist with Rambert Dance Company, work with BBC orchestras and English National Opera, plus a Top Ten hit and a gold disc with panpipe group Incantation); then as a composer and conductor (commissioned orchestral and choral works on TV & radio, ballet scores for the Edinburgh Festival, and piles of stuff for youth groups); and more recently as a teacher and animateur (composition projects, percussion ensemble work, UK A-level Music/Music Technology).

Andrew recently moved home, as it happens to within a few miles of the Somerset farm that witnessed his film debut and swansong. You might expect the place to be full of autograph-hunters at weekends, but curiously no. Still, he wanders up there from time to time, just in case.

She has nine award-winning documentaries that have aired nationally in Canada and in the United States on PBS. Her knack for telling the human story behind history made her a returning guest on CBC radio. In 2005 she was one of eight directors accepted to the Canadian Film Centre for directing drama. Her 2008 short film Loving Loretta was invited to 33 festivals from London, England to Mumbai India, winning awards for direction, and nominated by the actors union (ACTRA) for Best Performance of a Leading Female, 2009.

Cameron Ewart

Arriving in Melbourne from Queensland as a young boy, Cam Ewart unknowingly found himself in the centre of Australia's vibrant live music scene. Taking interests in music and theatre from a young age, Cam threw himself into acting & performing, finding his strong voice by accident at the age of 12. After countless musical theatre performances, Cam picked up the guitar at 15 & has been writing, recording & playing live ever since. Every band he has been involved in has quickly moved from garage to stage, each enjoying radio play here at home & on occasion overseas. As a solo performer he plunged into the deep end cutting his teeth sharing dusty stages with acts he held in high esteem such as The Drones, Don Walker (Cold Chisel) & many more.

These days his musical output is shared via the Alt-Country band Ghost Towns of the Midwest. Aswell as enjoying repeated airplay on Melbourne's 102.7RRRFM & 106.7PBSFM, the bands first single "Gallow Birds" debuted nationally on JJJ's "Roots 'n All". Their debut EP "Field Recordings Of..." was recently completed & shows the bands strong knack of combining vocal harmonies, guitars, bass, piano, violin & mandolin to create a sound that goes from upbeat boot stompers to bar room ballads.

Along the way Cam has continued acting on the side, and his face can be seen popping up in both indie & feature films, plus spots on the small screen. His love of film has also seen him compose & record scores & soundtracks for a number of short films. These days Cam combines all of these loves & talents whilst running a successful business teaching young children music. His program encourages kids to appreciate music, and uses artists like The Beatles & Elvis plus original songs to teaching them valuable skills for their development.
