A Couple Of Minutes With Frazetta

This little piece of footage was shot in June, 2000. We are in Frank's studio along with the documentary crew. The first voice you hear is me followed by questions from Lance Laspina, the director of the documentary. The crew spent the entire week with Frank and the cameras were rolling throughout the whole time. Bear in mind that Frank had just recovered from several debilitating strokes and was currently suffering from a very bad sinus condition that caused his eye to swell. It was an absolute miracle to see him doing this well. His sense of humor was intact. He was always gracious and kind. Looking at this reminds me again of how much fun and pleasure he brought into everyone's life. I miss him deeply. We had so much fun for so many years.

  1. Hi Doc! Thanks for sharing this candid view of Mr. F. The world is a little less colorful without him.
