... at the last minute, before my shoot with Bill Considine; President of Children's Hospital,I decided that I needed a bunch of stuffed animals. My producer scoffed at the idea saying that an important man like that wouldn't let himself be upstaged by a teddy-bear. My next-door neighbor's seven year-old daughter saved the day by auditioning her entire menagerie.
I confess to stacking the deck by pulling the stuffed puppies and bears from an old shopping bag while looking him in the eye and saying, "It's not about about money or power... it's about the children!"
When the shot was done I could hardly separate him from that bunny.
