I did a lot of good publicity work for New Line Cinema and Cannon Films (mostly press kits) during the mid to late ’80s. New Line-wise I’m especially proud of my nimble-witted promotions of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 and Critters. During the Critters shoot I bonded with M. Emmet Walsh and Billy Greenbush (whose folksy manner reminded me of my Kentucky-born grandfather). For all my efforts I only managed a single mention during closing credits (i.e., Critters). Back then I had a problem with “Jeffrey” — I thought it sounded too frilly or delicate.
