The entire repertory company went through a profound shock when David Lochary died in New York from complications of an angel dust overdose. David had never had a drug problerm until he discovered "dust," and for some reason he lost control. To this day I'm in favor of busting dealers who sell this crap. So if you're on the stuff, don't come around me, because I might call the police. David's death stunned Dreamland and made us realize a whole era in our lives had abruptly ended. At his wake we discussed the major influence David had had on our style and attitudes, and I knew that without my favorite leading man I had no choice but to make a film with all women stars.
