Sam taught me a LOT about making movies. I miss both of them very much. My mom was one of only two people who could make heads or takes out of Sam's writing which he did all by hand.
Sam died one day after my 22nd b-day on 1984. There are not people like Sam anymore, because Hollywood has become a political correctness wasteland of filth and garbage. The left wing communists would never give a person like Sam a chance to make movies now.
Sam was a great teacher. He is still missed. So is my mother.
