I never quite got used to the idea that I could pick up the phone
and call Academy Award Winner Cliff Robertson and ask him questions about
the film business.
In Cliff's Water Mill, NY Home, 2005
Nevertheless, for ten years he was always available to me, and
never hesitated to answer my questions, and offer me his assistance.
Naturally I often wondered what it took to win an Academy
Award. Since I was fortunate enough to
have arranged many interviews for him, and I was present for quite a few of
those interviews, I heard him answer many questions regarding his Academy Award
Cliff Robertson as Charly Gordon with Claire Bloom
One constant theme I recall is that from the time he acquired the
film rights to the original book Flowers for Algernon*, through the
entire filmmaking process, he knew he was the best actor to portray Charly
Gordon. He also knew that
everyone he worked with on the project were the best in the industry.
So I learned first hand that good, even magical things happen
once we finally decide to become the very best at what we do.
Although I tell everyone I work with that I have no magical
powers, I just work hard, smart, and keep an open mind, to produce the best
results for my clients, my goal is to be the very best I can be in my
work. So maybe I do have some
magical powers afterall!
Are you looking for publicity for your projects? Then just get back to me, tell me what you
have in mind, and let's work some magic!
