    These are phenomenal, RR!
    A piece on ‘The Stranger And The Gunfighter’?? Well, it worked for me. 🙂

    Is the director Alan Colberg still with us? It would be interesting to hear about his films and working with a fairly new Abigail Clayton.

    Thanks so much for this upload. I just became aware of the rialto report about a year ago or so and it has really brought me so much joy. The Podcasts and archives has answered hundreds of questions I’ve had over the years. I’m hoping you will eventually produce a film so we can see all the wonderful interviews you have done over the years. Again thank you…

      A film? Print would be the better medium.
      The interview RR managed with ‘Uschi Digard’ is for the ages, and should be a book!
      Granted, she kinda pretended it was all ‘softcore’ (not true), and she had little to say about working for Ed Wood??
