QUIET PLEASE
Title QUIET PLEASE
Description HISTORY
Message Text <p>                      I RECALL THAT WORKING WITH WYLLIS COOPER WAS A  VERY PLEASANT EXPERRIENCE.  HE WAS</p>
<p>A VERY LIKABLE, SOFT SPOKEN GUY AND EXTERMELY EASY TO GET ALONG WITH.  I ALSO REMEMEBER THAT</p>
<p>THAT COOPER WAS THE ONLY GOOD DIRECTOR I KNEW THAT GAVE  "LINE READINGS" FOR CERTAIN LINES</p>
<p>IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A CERTAIN EMPHASIS.  I ALSO RECALL THAT COOPER AND HIS WIFE EMILY BOTH HAD A</p>
<p>GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR.  FOR EXAMPLE,  AT HIS FUNERAL, WHICH WAS A MILITARY SERVICE, THE SOLDIERS</p>
<p>WHO WERE FOLDING THE FLAG AROUND THE COFFIN BOTCHED THE JOB BADLY AND HAD TO DO IT OVER.</p>
<p>EMILY TURNED TO ME AND SAID, "I'LL BET BILL IS PROBABLY LAUGHING LIKE HELL OVER THAT!"</p>
<p>I REMEMBER ACTING IN A NUMBER OF THE QUIET PLEASE PRODUCTIONS.  NEAR THE END OF THAT SERIES,</p>
<p>COOPER WAS CONTRACTED TO DO SIX QUIET PLEASE SHOWS FOR TELEVISION.  I WAS GIVEN THE STARRING</p>
<p>ROLE IN THE FIRST SHOW CALLED THE BELLHOP'S STORY.  IT WAS SHOT LIVE, USING A SINGLE FIXED CAMERA</p>
<p>THAT THE ACTORS HAD TO PLAY INTO.  THE STORY WAS A FANTASY ABOUT TWO BANK ROBBERS,  A MAN AND</p>
<p>A WOMAM, WHO ARE ESCORTED WITH THEIR BAGGAGE BY A BELLHOP INTO A CHEAP HOTEL ROOM WHERE</p>
<p>THEY INTENDED TO HIDE OUT.  BUT EVERYTHING GOES WRONG FOR THEM.  THEY DECIDE TO PLAY CARDS</p>
<p>TO KILL SOME TIME BUT THEIR DECK ONLY HAS 51 CARDS.  THEN THEY DECIDE TO HAVE A DRINK ONLY TO</p>
<p>DISCOVER THEIR LIQUOR BOTTLE INSIDE THE SUITCASE IS BROKEN.  THE BELLHOP SUDDENLY APPEARS</p>
<p>WITHOUT KNOCKING ON THE DOOR AND THESE TWO PEOPLE REALIZE THEY ARE DEAD, HAVING BEEN KILLED</p>
<p>AT THE CRIME SCENE.  THEY NOW FIND OUT THEY ARE IN HELL, AND THE BELLHOP IS ACTUALLY THE DEVIL.</p>
<p>THE FINAL LINE I DELIVERED, AS THE DEVIL, DIRECTLY TO VIEWERS WAS:  "MAYBE I'LL BE CARRYING YOUR</p>
<p>BAGS SOMEDAY!"</p>
<p>TO BE CONTINUED------      REMEMBRANCES BY FRANK THOMAS.     TO ALL THE FANS OF QUIET PLEASE!!!</p>
