DR-DEAN-BROOKS-TN-02

Joe Pantoliano interviews Dr. Dean Brooks, the former Superintendent of the Oregon State Hospital from 1955 to 1981.

Brooks talks about how he started in psychiatry, became involved with the film, and what he learned about acting from Jack Nicholson.

No Kidding? Me Too! (NKM2), founded by Joe Pantoliano, is a non-profit organization who’s main purpose is to stomp the stigma that surrounds brain disease.
