Posted on by Admin in Documentaries | Comments Off

DR-DEAN-BROOKS-TN-02

Joe Pantoliano interviews Dr. Dean Brooks, the former Superintendent of the Oregon State Hospital from 1955 to 1981. Brooks participated in the film One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest when the producers cast him as Dr. Spivey and shot the film at the hospital in Salem, Oregon during the mid-1970′s. 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.

New Haven Register – August 21, 2011
By Mark McCurley, Special to the Register

MILFORD — Tommy Edison, blind since birth, is drawn to things normally associated with a sighted person.

For 17 years, he’s been the traffic reporter for STAR 99.9 radio, delivering morning and afternoon rush updates for highways and streets he’s never seen.

“To the listeners, they don’t know the difference,” he said.

Now, the Milford resident is doing something even more surprising.

He’s reviewing movies at his website, www.blindfilmcritic.com. The videotaped reviews are for everyone, not just blind people, and are full of Edison’s irreverent humor, such as his unique rating system.
