One day, a nice car was needed for the bad guys to roll up in so they asked if they could borrow my parent's Cadillac. It makes an appearance in the film after a quick wash by the crew!

This was the fourth time I was hired by Duea Film and was a great experience as usual in working with them. Anytime I get to watch Pupi Avati direct on set is something special and a rare learning opportunity. This is my personal favorite of Pupi Avati's films that I worked on. From a really engaging story to great performances by Jason Robards III and Jim Ortlieb. It's a very entertaining and disturbing film.

Directed by Pupi Avati. Produced by Antonia Avati and Aurelio De Laurentiis. Starring Jason Robards III, Jim Ortlieb, Amy Galper, Robert Swan, Mary Sellars, Lee R. Sellars.

"The Childhood Friend" aka L'Amico D'Infanzia is a film about a childhood friend who comes back for revenge. The story revolves around Arnold Gardner who was played by Jason Robards III (John Carpenter's They Live) who is the host of a popular television show. His childhood friend, Eddie Greenberg who was played by Jim Ortlieb (Home Alone / Flatliners) is jealous of Arnold's success and wants to blackmail him over a "sin" which he committed in his younger days. Eddie begins to murder people in order to force Arnold to admit a childhood secret on air.
