Uncle Budd
14 February 2006 | by scarlet-30See all my reviews

I was so pleased to see that my Uncle Budd had some "in front of the camera" time in the documentary entitled "A Man Can Do That" as he was the ultimate story teller and could keep anyone entranced, and did, whether he was in our house in the Canyon with one of his fabulous wives or later at his ranch in San Diego. He was always amused that his films had become classics and I joked with him often, telling him people usually have to die first to attain that status. When asked about his "motivation" for a film he usually had a brief answer that had to do with a small budget and a short amount of time. He just made movies....and that is what he did. But his narratives off camera were the best and the best of him. I miss him terribly and am so glad the final tribute was made to him....and for him. He out partied and outlived them all.
