I just finished reading his autobiography 'If Chins Could Kill Confessions of a B Movie Actor' (well, last week anyway), and I have so much damn respect for this man it's pathetic. He went through hell, and the sad part is, he still gets no respect from Hollywood! But this all doesn't seem to bother him, so I guess it's cool with me too. I love his attitude, he has a very humorous outlook on life that is very inspiring to me, he always has a joke ready to describe even the worst horrors of his life and I like that. He takes things on the, eh hem, chin. He really put things in perspective about how the Hollywood machine works in this book, it's a well oiled machine designed to chew up and spit out anyone who dares venture there with hopes of "making it big". According to him, the only big thing you'll make in Hollywood is a 'Big Mac' if your not careful, and have the stomach to take it. I wouldn't have been able to stand everything he went through that's for damn sure. I e-mailed him right after I read it, and I got a reply the next day, which was a thrill. It wasn't very long, just one or two sentences, but at least I got his attention with my message. Anyway, i'll never think of this man the same way since reading about his exploits as an actor. In fact, I have a whole new appreciation for 'Evil Dead' now after reading about the living hell he, Sam Raimi, and the crew went through to make it! Freezing temperatures, an impassable dirt trail to town because of ice, sleeping on floors, cameras and other equipment actually freezing, and one "broken" shirt (don't ask, read the book)! I used to think it was a cheap, little horror flick that was not as good as 'Evil Dead 2', now, it's right on par with it IMO. Here's to you Bruce.
