I was an extra in a night scene
in a movie about Jake and Elwood.
My scene got cut.
I was head and shoulders
above the crowd.
There were no horses.
I quit counting takes
when I ran out of fingers.
The cavalry rescued no one.
There was no issue
with stage bullets or real bullets.
A cameraman tripped and broke a lens.
Onsite the morning after
I found a broken pair of sunglasses.
