The neck line of The Great Keach's beard is up too high. Other than that, great trailer. I'm glad The Great Keach is well again and that this play is back on track; I would love to see it, but it probably won't be coming down to the South Florida area. frown

Speaking of The Great Keach and Papa, Howard, have you ever seen the 1980s Hemingway miniseries? In a world of old rags and bones, I liked it fine. I just wish it had only covered the 1930s, since The Great Keach would have been around Hemingway's age and there wouldn't have been the need for any aging makeup or sprawling narrative.

Here's The Great Keach writing about "Pamplona", from our no-doubt beloved New York Times:

Oh I never did catch the miniseries (ah them Roots, Winds Of War, Sick Man, Well Man days...) and would appreciate watching it now much more than then. Have always respected Keach too right from the get-go.

And yeah that link is the article posted above.

IIRC, the NY Times frowns upon full-on pasting of articles elsewhere...wouldn't want to incur their journalistic--and no doubt objective--wrath. wink

I was a fan of Keach after i saw him in Doc with Harris Yulin. Understated and very natural

My grandad and I used to watch Mike Hammer every Saturday. That is, until Keach got busted in Bill's country for drug posession. Kudos to CBS for not giving up on Keach, and bringing Mike Hammer back. I doubt that would happen with any performers today.

Saw parts of the film on Encore Westerns(?) channel, but I never managed to get the FSM release of Jerry's score; it was always a wishlist bridesmaid, but never an item-in-my-cart bride.

Always liked Hem's Nobel Prize acceptance speech. The first paragraph is legendary:

"Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for writers palliate the writer's loneliness but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.

For a true writer each book should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment. He should always try for something that has never been done or that others have tried and failed. Then sometimes, with great luck, he will succeed."

Showed that impressive Pamplona trailer to a couple of colleagues at work; they were impressed with its quality, and The Great Keach's power. Too bad there aren't any plans for the play to tour--at least one of us needs to see it, Howard! Failing that, I hope the play is filmed and released to DVD for us poor buggers who won't get the chance to watch the thing en vivo.

Agreed. It stands to reason he'd tour it in Florida somewhere. A weekender in the Keys is a tantalizing thought.

I wonder if it has proven successful enough to tour. I've only seen a few, poorly-written reviews of PAMPLONA. Most reviews focus on Keach's onstage heart attack from the show's aborted first run.

See? I told you so.

"The Hemingway of Twitter."

I think I shall succumb to an intestinal disorder.

Decided I would finally jump into this thread to share that I'm in the middle of reading For Whom the Bell Tolls right now.

Ever since seeing his Hemingway miniseries back in the 80s or 90s, whenever it came out, I hear Keach's voice in my head whenever I read Hemingway.

A couple of months ago I read a wonderful old article by Hemingway called Monologue to the Maestro. https://dianedrake.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Hemingway-Monologue-to-the-Maestro1.pdf It's a look into Hemingway's methods and particularly valuable writing advice. He describes an encounter with a young man he ends up calling Maestro (and eventually "Mice" for short). Mice asked Hemingway for writing advice and eventually got it, along with some sailing experience. After reading the article, I immediately began to wonder if Mice ever wrote his novel, so I did some googling and, well, his life was not so wonderful. https://bismarcktribune.com/news/columnists/curt-eriksmoen/north-dakotan-became-a-friend-of-hemingway/article_d3619a54-35a9-11e2-b451-001a4bcf887a.html
