THE MOVIE DUMBSTRUCK
There aren't enough of these types of movies being shown, these days. But finally I got an opportunity, last year at the Vent Have Convention to view it. What a great opportunity it was. If you wish to see some of the greats of yesteryear, they are available on youtube. From the likes of Edgar Bergen, Paul Winchell, Shari Lewis to name just a few. If you remeber those vents, you so dearly loved, growing up, then go to the wayback machine known as youtube, enter that persons name and presto like magic, there they are once again, just like they were so many years ago. Today we have the like of Terry Fator and Jeff Dunham, Dan Horn who I have the priledge of calling friends. Terry and Dan are both in the Movie DUMBSTRUCK. At present the movie is only going to be shown in selected theaters in selected markets. I would think, the reason for this is these markets have the largest non mainstreamaudiences in the country. Hoping that it does well in these theaters. In any case if the movie fails in the theaters, it can then be put onto DVD. This saves the producers of the movie lots of money. Not that its cheap to produce DVDs, its not, they could and would cost the producers about 4-5 thousand dollars each. So let me tell you after viewing the movie, if your a fan of ventriloquism this movie is a must see. Its got some people familiar to many and some not known at all, it tells of the trials and tribulations of being a ventriloquist. Why they have chosen this form of entertaining Now I am hoping that the same thing is being thought of for Magic..Storytellers.Balloon Twisters or just the world of stand up entertainers.
