Cover response

Name: Rick Ollerman Source: unca20091007.htm My cent and a half: I strongly dislike the cover. My first thought was that it was a joke, my second was that it was ugly, and my third was that while I must buy the book I don't think I'd ever let anybody see it.

Extra stuff

Name: Rick Ollerman Source: unca20090603.htm Mr. Sherman, I was an extra on "Purple Rain" way back when in Minneapolis. Long days, one skimpy box lunch, closed set so you couldn't leave, had to dress and act like it was summer in the dead cold of winter for the outdoor shots (we held cigarettes to ...
