More on Jack Dunphy's Ted Wooly

Mark your calendars, folks, for a special showing of Jack Dunphy's short film, Ted Wooly, on Friday, 12 February 2010. Location (probably in Chicago) to be announced.

I just viewed it off a DVD and I have never seen my grandson so animated as I did as his playing the title role. What an actor! The film is a little dark, but not too much so, I think. He probably can tell you about all the technically correct things he should have done or not done or done better, but objectively, this higher level of self-awareness does not bode well for the possibility of his considering attending Vassar (although I am still pushing for it). Well, maybe there's a VC alum out there who can tell him differently.
