Channing Pollock - playwright

Was looking to see if amazon might happen to have "European Nights" on DVD. They don't. But a search there on his name brought this up. Just thought it was interesting.

PS - because amazon prime has that "Magic and Beyond" show on prime, & it showed that famous clip in one episode. Smooth.

Our Channing Pollock was in fact named after the other Channing Pollock.

His pregnant mother, met the famed Broadway playwright and essayist whom she admired greatly, and as the story goes, it was the playwright himself who suggested naming the new baby "Channing".

PS - You can get a DVD of European Nights from somethingweird.com for $10.

Thanks Brad! There was a vague memory of that in the back of my mind. Also thanks for the recommendation!
