EDWARD HERRMANN IN DEATH VALLEY

title05_012020597PROJECT: Death Valley GENRE: Horror Action YEAR: 1982 TALENT: Edward Herrmann KNOWN FOR: The Lost Boys OTHER PROJECTS: Annie, The Purple Rose of Cairo, The Paper Chase, The Great Waldo Pepper, The Great Gatsby, The Betsy CHARACTER: Paul Stanton POSITION: Paul is an upper class businessman in New York whose son Billy is about to go on a trip to meet his mother’s new boyfriend: spending the summer in a place called Death Valley, a desert town that would love up to its name in this underrated horror yarn. CLOSURE: Edward Herrmann proves that even in a small, seemingly unimportant scene he makes a difference… We get to learn how much Billy, played by “shoot your eye out kid” Peter Billingsly, loves his dad; how depressed he is about his parent’s divorce; and how much New York City means to him just by the conversation with his father… That’s setting up a movie right since the first seven minutes have no action or suspense, just dialogue ala Hitchcock. MEDIA: Edward Herrmann passed away today, and he was a great actor, one of a kind, and will be missed… But just to note: imdb should not have described his Lost Boys character… spoilers suck, fellas.
