Abstract:

Unedited footage, with multiple takes, of actor Ron Vawter as he works on the film version of his one-person stage piece 'Roy Cohn/Jack Smith.' Sitting with an audience watching the film at The Public Theater, Vawter addresses the camera, explains how he came to create the piece, talks about the two men and how each responded to his own homosexuality in radically different ways. Vawter also sits for an interview in the theater's lobby. He talks about his life and career, how he became an actor, his work with the Wooster Group, and his experience with director Jonathan Demme (who is seen briefly) on the film 'Philadelphia.' He examines the impact of AIDS on actors' careers, and reads a statement written by actor Brad Davis, written shortly before his death from AIDS-related causes in 1991. Vawter also reads a passage from T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets, which appeared as an insert in the playbills for his performance piece.
