Video promo - Sidi Barrani- the beginning


Video promo - The Ice Cream Man


It was a cold day. It was a rainy day. We wore German uniforms from WW2. Some of us were French refugees. I drove a staff car and had a German officer in the back. The horse carried another uniformed soldier. We had machine guns. We had side arms. The director shouted "Action!" and he meant it. Seventeen takes. Seventeen glorious takes. (well, actually, it was only three.... lots of different angles...) And we ate like lords all day. Film set food. Loads of it. We were all locals and we loved it all. The making of the film can't come quick enough....
