    I remember working with Gary, as script supervisor on his student film at the University of Texas. I will never forget the day his mom’s fur coat arrived from NY via mail to be used in the film! As a director, Gary was demanding, but also inspirational and lots of fun. Glad I had the opportunity to work with him. It didn’t hurt that he was handsome also! 🙂
