Storyline

In East Texas, the summer after high school, Jack falls in love with Ginny, the daughter of the town's banker (Jack's mom's high school sweetheart). Ginny's been at boarding school; she's headed for Vassar. Over her father's strenuous objections, she spends time with Jack. At summer's end, Jack and Ginny elope to Louisiana (where 17-year-olds can marry without their parents' permission), and he gets a job in the oil fields. Her dad hires a menacing private eye to find them, Ginny's pregnant, her town doctor gives her horrible news, and Jack's mom has her own agenda. It seems that Jack and Ginny have grown up under a liar's moon. What will these sweethearts do? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I worked on this film
23 October 2004 | by (Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

As the apprentice editor. My boss, Steve Rosenbloom, went on to edit most of Ed Zwick's films and supervise the editing of Bedford Falls shows (thirtysomething). The editor, Chris Greenbury, was English and was known for the occasional temper tantrum. I didn't know it at the time, but he was one of the fastest cutters in the business.

I was seventeen and studying film at HSPVA, Houston's High School for Performing and Visual Arts. There was an actors' strike going on in Los Angeles, so the cast and crew were really top rate for a low-budget local film.

I ran the edge coding machine. We worked on Moviolas in two rooms of a large hotel near Sharpstown. Cindy Fischer smiled at me once, and I saved enough money to make a 16mm film the next semester, before coming out to LA and going to film school at USC.

I gradually fell into the world of software development, which I love, and recently ended up at DreamWorks. So, if you watch the title crawl at the end of Shark Tale, way below the HP logo, you'll see my second feature film credit -- nearly 25 years after my first.
