I am now living in the heart of the film industry and have been involved in the film and theates industry for almost 50 years.I started out in New York City which was where the acting scene at the Actors Studio (I am a lifetime member) included Robert DeNiro,Dustin Hoffman ,Al Pacino,Robert Duval and other name actors like Martin Landau ,Rod Steiger,Shelley Winters,Paul Newman,Ben Gazzara and the list goes on. That was then and the picture has changed. A stage play in New York names a name Hollywood actor to make a profit. The independent film scene has also changed. Steven Soderbergh commented on that recently at the San Francisco International Film Festival and major companies have taken over the studios.

I still work as an actor in commercials,TV and mostly independent films. I ahve worked with the major directors like Francis Ford Coppola,Sydney Lumet, and  Bryan Singer whom I met on his first feature and the relationship is same even now.

Currently I can be seen on reruns,commercials,short films and indie films.

We are currently shooting this web series

Crazy Horse ,an erotic documentary on the Parisian Cabaret

Crazy Horse ,an erotic documentary on the Parisian Cabaret

by Ron Gilbert

All I keep hearing on my mind’s sound track when I watched this documentary by talented director Frederick Wiseman , were the lyrics “you make me crazy”.
Years ago I had the good fortune to visit the Landmark Le Crazy Horse cabaret in Paris and so my memories were still intact. This film is a very inside view of the workings of this famed cabaret where all these beautiful dancers are more than just sexy but classy with no tattoos in sight. and the best sexy dancing in the world.
French choreographer Philippe Decouflé revamped the nude show a couple years ago and only the brilliant award winning director Wiseman could have created done this with his cinematographer John Davey capturing every move, and what really happens backstage with the creative process. and artistic differences.
The Film opens with shadow hand puppets and then we slip into the dressing room of some of the performers, a quick cut to some dance numbers which hooks you right in and you know that your eyes are in for a rare treat.
Le Crazy Horse has prided itself as “the best nude dancing in the world” since 1951 and is worlds apart from the average strip club
A new show called “DESIRS” is being staged and we see the day-to-day existence and the creative process behind the curtain and often in front of it As the club's costume designer explains, the show is designed "to make the men in the audience crazy," and while Wiseman certainly basks in the artful deployment of naked flesh even isolating in one sequence the performers' buttocks. This is pretty cool coming from an 82 year old director.This erotic revue is composed of songs and sequences that blend traits of old-fashioned burlesque, Bob Fosse and Cirque du Soleil, designed not only for the enjoyment of men, but also couples.
We see a single dancer sliding seductively on a couch to the tune of Antony and the Johnsons' "Man Is the Baby" or a group number in which a row of women in orange wigs wiggle while a projector spreads blue polka dots across their bodies, the performances are delirious mix of ballet, performance art, and striptease.
There have been dance films prior to this documentary but this films goes way beyond the dance numbers and what would any French film be without champagne and beautiful girls laughing and having fun.

Film opens February 3 at the Landmark’s Nuart theatre in Los Angeles
