I’ve added two of the long form articles I’ve written in their own separate links above. The first, “Joan Barry: The Most (In)famous Actress to Never Appear on Screen” was written over a course of about 6 months in 2009. The final draft was finished in late 2009 and it was published on the site Alternativereel.com. It explores, in great detail, the relationship between Charles Chaplin and Joan Barry in the early 1940s which lead to an international scandal. Furthermore, some of the information within had never before been released; primarily, the aftermath of what happened following the scandal.
The second, is an in depth retrospective piece on film director Frank Perry, whose credits include David and Lisa, The Swimmer, Last Summer and the infamous Mommie Dearest. It was completed in the fall of 2010 and this is the first time its been released to a viewing audience. As far as I know, it is the only in depth retrospective of Perry’s entire career with analysis of each of his films from David and Lisa to On the Bridge. Each of these articles run about 5,500 words and a good deal of research went into each. I hope you enjoy!
