Memorial Day Salute

29 May

To our EFB Flynnmate Jack Marino, Writer & Director of FORGOTTEN HEROES, a magnificent tribute to veterans, and (at least to my knowledge) the only war film ever made with scenes filmed at Mulholland Farm.

Bravo, Jack!

“Jack, you have helped enhance the lives of our Nation’s military and veterans and I appreciate your efforts to honor these heroes” Your support of these selfless warriors reflects the best of the American Spirit and I am grateful for your compassionate work.’

– President George W. Bush – White House Letter July 21, 2008…

— Tim

    Gentleman Tim,

    Thank you so much for your kindness and support of my film on the EFB. You’re truly a Gentleman, now if somehow we can make you the Chairman of Warner Bros studios then you can pick up the only film that WAS shot on Mulholland Farm with a lot of Flynn nods throughout the film.

    As fellow Mulholland Drive Boy, Fynn aficionado, and fellow filmmaker Steve Latshaw said,

    I am watching FORGOTTEN HEROES tonight and am reminded of what a beautiful, heartfelt film it is. You’ve seen it so many times it’s impact may be lost on you. It’s truly a great film, beautifully shot. And I loved the nods to Errol, particularly the incredible scene where the surfer has been tortured and asks the Greek to kill him. It reminded me of the great scene in Objective Burma – but you took it further and the emotional impact was profound.

    I have made over 35 movies in my career. I have always wanted to make a film that would affect people lives in a profound and positive way. I haven’t yet done so. I’ve often said I’d give up my career if I could make one film like that. You did it right out of the gate.

    I am and continue to be in awe of your passion and envious of your talent.

    Bung Ho.

      What a tremendous compliment to you and your talents from Steve Latshaw. You earned it, Jack.

      Btw, it’s epic that you filmed Forgotten Heroes at Mulholland!
