Thanks for the great review. It still amazes me the reaction we get from audiences after all thesecaptainmilkshake.jpg years. And it’s particularly gratifying to hear that you get it.

I still get my kicks sitting in the audience and listening to the reactions that occur in all the right places. It is interesting that people make comments that the dialog or attitude of the characters seem cliched, when in fact Captain was made in 1969 when most people acted and said what they did in the film. It is hard for some to believe that our country was so fictionalized… and that characters like Uncle Jimson really existed and thought that I was a commie, pinko, fagot, bastard. And if I didn’t like this country I should just leave it.

Thank again for the mention! And let me know if you have any other plans to show it. I’d love to come and make comments.

Director, Captain Milkshake
