Bill Smith @byzantiumbooks reminded me this evening of one of my screen-tests that I did back in the sixties.
When Maxwell Smart, Agent 86, and his lovely wife Agent 99 had their baby, the producers screen tested a number of young children for the part. In this one instance, my diminutive size came in handy, and I almost got the role due to my superior acting ability (relative to all those little poopy babies), but in the end, my voice was too deep for the role.
Again, I lost out on a great opportunity because of a physical limitation. Sometimes these Hollywood types just miss out on the most wonderful opportunity (ME!), because they are too short sighted.
Anyway, it was nice to reflect back on this little memory.
