Tom Neyman is NOT dead
30 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have known Tom and Jackey for over thirty years. Neither are dead, I assure you. Tom is retired and lives in Oregon, as does Jackey, who is a successful painter and single parent.

I haven't seen this documentary yet, so I'm giving it an arbitrary vote of 5, based on the communications Jackey has shared with me (I'm the one who hooked her up with the Producers).

At least, I'm hoping it's a good documentary, because it would have to be on a par with Citizen Kane to make "Manos" rise to the level of "terrible." I loved MST3K's version of "Manos," though the original version exemplified the qualities of being (to paraphrase Mark Twain); "chloroform on film."
