Million Dollar Movie

My old chum Bart Goldberg -- the bass player of my college rock band, who can be glimpsed in Party, the student film I bugged you about a while back -- has unearthed another product of the C.W. Post College cinema department.

So, from 1970, please enjoy Fanny Meets the Fickle Finger. Written and directed by the aforementioned Bart Goldberg, and featuring barely adequate silent film piano stylings by some guy whose name rhymes with Sleeve Nimels.

I think we can all agree on two things after viewing this. To wit:

1. It is no surprise that I never had a career as a film composer.


2. Linda Megna -- who plays the girl on the railroad tracks -- was cute as a bugs ear.

Note to self: Moldy old student films having no connection whatsoever to the mission statement of this blog of less interest to readers than hoped.

Hey, you try being brilliant five or six days a week at these prices.

Your playing was spot-on for that, IMHO. However, they did misspell your name in the credits. ;)

Mr. Simels, are you related to the "Simmels" character who did the music?

Great. Now we need to get IMDB to cross-reference "Steve Simels" and "Steve Simmels."

I have a cousin, Mike Ricciardi, who went to C.W. Post around the same time as you. He had a girlfriend named Linda who looks like the heroine of the film. Could they be the same Linda?
