Playing Possum

Meet Drama...

Much like his namesake, Johnny "Drama" Chase...

Drama takes desperate measures to make new friends...

And only manages to get hissed at...

Nice looking dog :) By the way, I came across a website of an old buddy of Jim Morrison´s, Paul Ferrera, and found out that he was also on the set of Barfly. Did you ever had the chance to talk with him and did he tell any stories about Morrison?

I don't think I met him. I probably saw him but wouldn't have had reason to speak with him.

I was only on the set a few days when they were shooting at the bar. It was in a then-seedy part of Culver City and I remember they were shooting a fight scene between Mickey Rourke and Frank Stallone in the alley behind the bar. I couldn't get over the number of huge rats (besides MR) crawling around back there. I thought they were 'actor rats' but it turned out they were real.

He also took a few pictures on the set you can find them here under the Barfly section http://paulferrara.net/ There is also a nice picture of him and Babe Hill, another friend of Jim´s, and how they look nowadays. ...and it seems that I´m no help when it comes to correcting typos, the name is Ferrara not Ferrera.
