Whatever else we accomplish with this blog I will always be proud of helping to facilitate, in some small way, the meeting of filmmaker Kenn Christenson and now retired Army aviator Outlaw 13 aka Dan McClinton resulting in Kenn’s soon to be released historical documentary about Dan’s unit. Peabody Award winning International film and television star Nick Searcy did the narration, Dan provided a lot of information, technical know how, hook ups with unit members (and more than that I’m sure), Eric Porvaznik facilitated a lot of logistics including the upcoming premiere in Burbank (and getting Nick on board — and more than that I’m sure), Kenn produced, directed, photographed, key gripped and bested boy the thing and I, well I made sure Kenn’s trailer was stocked with orange M&Ms and bottles of Evian water chilled at no higher than 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
So we are having a premiere this Thursday May 9 at 8:00 PM at the AMC 16, 125 East Palm Ave. Burbank, CA 91502. Members of Dan’s battalion will be on hand as will Outlaw, Kenn, Eric P, and little ole me. Word has it that -fritz will put on pants long enough to appear and the word has been put out to Tink if she can make the trip down (and Texacalirose cannot — something about “having something better to do” which I take as a dirty euphemism).
It is open to whomever, tickets are $10 and there will be a get together afterwards. Y’all are invited of course.
