MR. LOUIS ZORICH
Mr. Zorich plays Forrest White in "THE PRICE OF ART". This haunting tale of a working actor with a 60 year career, shows the price one pays for one's art.
The above photo depicts Forrest as he sits in his agent of 30 year's office and listens to his agent discuss diet plans with someone else on the phone. Forrest comes in weekly to see what parts his agent can send him out on. Sadly though, his agent no longer finds Forrest to be viable as an actor or is an actor he can make any money off of and suggests Forrest retires. Forrest knows no other life - he has "never had a real job" - and refuses to quit. He does not do this for the money but because he has to.
This character study, written and directed by Charlie Spickler will touch the hearts of all who stuggle with their dreams and why they pursue them.
