Miracle on 42nd Street, the PBS-aired documentary that I cowrote, will be available in late February for streaming purchase on Amazon, iTunes and Google Play. Fans of physical media, please note that DVDs will be available in just a matter of days via Amazon. Truly, we live in an age of wonder.
So, I wrote the following stories. I emailed them to my mother. I received a reply from said mother that said stories “made [her] eyes water.”
Please be advised: These are not short reads.
- “Charles Manson, Sharon Tate, the Beach Boys and the Unbelievably True Story Behind the Manson Family Murders”
- “Some People Still Don’t Believe the Moon Landing Was Real — and Here’s Why”
Both concern the summer of 1969. Both were written for iDaily. And both will make your eyes water.
From something or other.
Miracle on 42nd Street, the doc on subsidized housing, artist communities and the origin story of Seinfeld that I keep posting about (’cause I cowrote it with Steve Ryfle), will screen April 29 as part of the Newport Beach Film Festival. Tickets, as they say, are now on sale.
