writer cameo
3 January 2015 | by threedogs-441-516588See all my reviews

watch for the strange little fan at the stage door (he is carrying a carnation) played by writer Steve j Spears . He also played the mechanic on the swing in mad max and is the author of the long running play "The Elocution of Benjamin Franklyn" . I love this light hearted romp , it's a great old fashion comedy . This is one of those movies that is worth watching a second time for what you have missed first time round . if you are lucky enough to own a copy of this with it's original artwork you may notice that it has the identical artwork as "Pennsylvania 6 5000" with Jeff Goldblum . give this movie a look if you have previously passed it by .the writer Steve J Spears has passed away and sadly missed.
