  1. I remember seeing him in Mother, but also ..can’t remember the name of the movie, but I do remember one scene where he is waiting to use the public phone and an old man is talking love to woman on the phone. Also, can’t remember the name of the movie, where the camera followed the family day in and day out, driving them crazy. Wish I could read the names, as I laughed myself silly over them. Glades thrill for me was seeing him at the airport once.
