Frank's place. [Cultural exchange ( Visual )
14 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Tiger interrupts Frank in the midst of a phone call to introduce Sheila Munyo of the Louisiana Film Commission and Andy Gleason of Anston Studios. It seems that they want to pay Frank $8,000 to take over the Chez Louisiane for two days as a filming location. Tiger is hired to play the bartender, and has to be taught the correct southern accent by the director. The director, Arnold David Tuney, is insulting to the actors when they are not present ("The president of the United States is an actor; sleep well tonight") and fawns all over them when they are present (when Brandman, the male lead, makes a mistake, the director blames Tiger for it). It turns out that the script refers to the restaurant as a "sleazy joint." The director micromanages the mixing of the fake blood because "Roman Polanski makes his own blood." Bobby Days, the actor playing the villain and the friendliest member of the cast, tells Bubba that the director cares only about smoke and blood. Neema, the female lead, comes on to Frank and invites him to have lunch the next day in her trailer. Frank is embarrassed but Bubba urges him to go: "This is history. ... It's like gettin' in there with the Statue of Liberty. ... You owe it to movie-goers everywhere." Bobby Days later tells Frank that he cost the crew $400, in a bet Bobby won, because Frank did not meet Neema in her trailer after all. "It's a little game she plays with local yokels. The only thing that happens is lunch." Larry, who has been treated like dirt throughout the shoot, not given a button to identify him as a member of the crew so almost turned away by security, yelled at for blocking the light, etc., turns out to be the writer of the script.
