If Bob Konikow had lived 300 years ago, he'd have been Samuel Pepys and Mr. Johnson, rolled into one. Theatrically-trained Mid-western adventurer who set post-collegiate sights on infamous Tinsel Town. A witty, engaging recounting of tales of a dedicated filmmaker, Bob's adventures in the flick trade have brought him to the heights of Hollywood's glamour route, and the depths of the Grand Canyon. An inventor whose technical modifications streamlined animation processes, a daredevil whose idea of a date was to fly separate planes above the Rose Bowl, a folk dancer who also held sway on horseback (the four-footer replacing the unicycle as Bob's steady steed for a time), Konikow doesn't set out to find excitement, but it certainly finds him! Energetic page-turning sharing of that life.
