Additional Info
2 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was in this film along with several of my friends from an acting troupe in Long Beach, CA. We were known collectively as Denalee Productions, and Robbie Wolcott was an actor/member. We shot a scene (at a party) with me and Gregory Harrison exchanging lines, nose to nose, both of us standing at the end of a diving board, over the deep end of a pool. It later transpired that I was unable to attend the premier, and was told that my scene and dialog had been cut. I would love to see this movie- just to see how it all turned out. Much of the film was shot in and around Long Beach. It would be great to see the old gang again- our group was used as extras throughout the film. My name is Glen Banks. Thanks for the memories....
