Amsterdam’s Own Film Festival


If you’re looking for something to do on a bad weather weekend, I’ve compiled an Amsterdam Film Festival. Its a nine pack (pictured above) of DVDs consisting of some classic movies that include at least one appearance by one-time residents of Amsterdam, NY. I’ve also compiled a growing list of folks who live or lived in Amsterdam and also have a film appearance on their resume. This list includes:

Tom Stewart (appeared as Sparky in the movie Jaws II)
Tim Riley (appeared as “Hulk” in the movie Taps, starring George C. Scott, Timothy Hutton, Tom Cruise and Sean Penn)
Ruth Zakarian (appeared as Princess Luna in the movie “The Lords of Magick”)
Jessica (Capogna) Collins (appeared in “Leprechaun 4 In Space” and as a “fake” stewardess in “Catch Me if You Can”)
Randy Becker (appeared as Ramon in the movie Love! Valour! Compassion!)
Mary Duncan (Hollywood starlet wife of Laddie Sanford)
Edward Kercado (has appeared in a half-dozen movies as a bit-part actor)
Bob Going (appeared as an extra in the movie “The Way We Were”)
Kevin McKearn (appeared as an extra in the movie “Ironweed”)
Dan Kelly Jr. (appeared as an extra in the movie “The Social Network”)
