Letter from Howard Schatz: "Smart, quick, and wonderful"
[Webmistress's note: After Howard Schatz's photo-book, In Character: Actors Acting, came out, I emailed him
and asked how he came to involve James Booth in that project, what it was like to work with him, and
how the "over the top" theme originated. This is his response.--db]
We invited actors whose performances moved us---he filled that bill. He was smart, quick, and wonderful. All the "parts" came from a combination of planning and spontaneity. Best, HS
