As I've blogged in the past, I've been in hot pursuit of video footage of my high school performance in a lip-synching contest called the Mock Rock. (I'm also after video of my only acting gig, in Torch Song Trilogy during my college years—shut up, I was the Matthew Broderick part.)
Anyway, I did finally pry a broken VHS copy away from a generous classmate, had it professionally restored and put on DVD (not easy when the tape is blown out) and it's amazingly watchable...but is from the wrong year. So I now have a nice copy of Mock Rock '86 when Matt was writhing around on a bedsheet as Samantha Fox in 1987.
Curses, foiled again.
I have one more solid lead, and then it enters into the realm of a Louise Brooks movie.
