PROFILE OF FILM DIRECTOR PEDRO ALMODOVAR, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 2000.


NOTE: Here’s an article I wrote on Pedro Almodovar, who I interviewed one-on-one
and in person in West Hollywood on December 15, 1999.

Unfortunately, my editor at the San Francisco Chronicle truly botched the
edit – and sent it to the printer without running the changes by me.
(Hey, the editor didn’t need to change a word, for crissakes! And I sent
it via email, so it didn’t even need to be keyed in by someone else!)

So, here, for the first time, are the two Almodovar pieces: the one
I submitted for publication and the published edition that the editor
screwed up. (Pay particular attention to the lede graf; the editor
changed it from “late to the party” to “late at the party.” (What
kind of nasty is that, huh?) Anyway, enjoy my manuscript (and
contrast it with the published edition).

By the way, the Almodovar manuscript you see is exactly -- exactly -- what
I submitted to my editor. The original manuscript is presented here without
any redactions, without any changes whatsoever.

FEATURE STORY ON WOODY HARRELSON FOR THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 2000.


Btw, what a terrible headline the editor slapped on the piece! For the
record, the article ran exactly as I wrote it. (But – inside baseball
for a minute -- the copy editor got a little tricky. He temporarily
changed the lede sentence to something else, until I objected
vociferously. I told him, don’t you dare change that lede!
So, to save face, he said, why don’t we try this instead – and
he showed me the exact lede sentence I had written in the first place!

OF ARCHIVAL INTEREST ONLY!



For those with an academic interest in what my very first published article
was, here it is. The published paper version is now 45 years old, so it has
faded considerably (though it can still be read if you magnify it).

Hence, I'm presenting both the paper version and a transcript of what
was in the piece!


It's not a very good or very funny article, but it is my first
to see print. It was published in the student newspaper of The
Independent Day School (Tampa, Florida) in the Fall of 1969 and
is titled "I Dreamed I Was Richard Nixon."


This is the (virtually unreadable) paper edition.


I DREAMED I WAS RICHARD NIXON

By Paul Iorio
Staff Writer


Last night I dreamed I was Richard Nixon.


I was on vacation in Washington, D.C., preparing to go to work in

San Clemente, wearing my baggy 1945 shorts, my hush-puppy shoes and

my Eisenhower smile.



As my plane landed in San Clemente, I got off eager to get to work.

But first I had to make a phone call to Jack Benny for a golf game,

and I told him not to forget his blindfold.



We played golf until 8 p.m. At 8, I worship the moon, because if it

were not for the moon trip, I would have to find another way to get

my name in the newspaper headlines.


I might even be so drastic as to try to make a decision in

order to get myself some publicity!


After much hard golf in San Clemente, I went back to Washington

for a much-needed vacation.


As the plane landed, up ran my faithful companion Spiro.


“Spiro, watch out for that brick wall!,” I yelled. Darn fool.

Broke his nose again!


Spiro breaking his nose was a happy moment, though, because it

gave him a chance to make headlines!
