A young man is beaten to death. Now it's believed that he sought out sanctuary in the house of a man (Hughes), and that the man threw him out. And it's also believed that the boy being Hispanic was probably part of a gang and that the whole thing was gang related, so the police don't consider any need to investigate the incident. But a teacher (Kelly) doesn't believe this, and sets out to find out what happened that night by talking to the man, but he doesn't want to talk about it. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Copy of tape?
2 August 2005 | by flyingphotographerSee all my reviews

My name is Tony Olivieri and am listed in the credits as Miguel..

Angel, (David Hernandez), and I had a scene together where I enter the locker room after his school play performance to tell Angel, that his girlfriend, was waiting for him. She was about to tell him that she was pregnant and wanted to abort the baby. It was my first time in a speaking role, and the director was very open to suggestions from David and myself.

In the scene Angel was in a hurry to get dressed but got into a verbal sparring session with a fellow student, a large black kid who'd also gone on to make additional films. The kids were reacting to the comment from the other guy when Angel shot him a one-liner in response, per the script. The kids were supposed to react to Angel's comment with a little zeal, but it came out all wrong. I'd mentioned to the director that perhaps the reaction should be one of jubilant cheering to the comments by pint sized Angel to the much larger black student. I'm sorry I forgot his name...We re-shot the scene and it went much better.

David and I had the same agent, Salazar & Navas, and had several auditions together, but I gave up and pursued my education. The movie aired on 12 JAN 87 as an ABC-TV movie of the week.

Unfortunately, I lost my only copy of the tape when my family moved while I was away at college that fall. I would love to get a copy so I can save it for my son. If anyone has a copy available, please contact me.

Thanks a TON,

Tony Olivieri +1 312 280 4848
