JESILU PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCES DAVID SCHWARTZ DOCUMENTARY


by Thomas M. Sipos, managing editor.  [August 30, 2008]


 

 

[HollywoodInvestigator.com]  J. Neil Schulman of Jesilu Productions has announced the release of his newest project, Dave Schwartz: Firsthand from the First Stand.

The production is an HD video interview with 92-year-old David Schwartz, lead violist in Glenn Miller's Army Air Force Band, principal violist with the Cleveland Orchestra, member for seven seasons of NBC's orchestra for Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows, and a Hollywood musician whose violia solos can be heard in The Godfather and many of John Williams's movie scores.

In the documentary's interview, Schwartz reminisced about his career and talked intimately about musicians, and other famous people he's met and worked with, including Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, the Dorsey Brothers, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, Jascha Heifetz, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Clint Eastwood, Mel Brooks, George Burns, Sid Caesar, Steven Spielberg, and many others.

The documentary partially focuses on Dave Schwartz's World War II experience with the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band, from its formation through the end of World War II. Schwartz speaks about Glenn Miller's disappearance over the English Channel in December 1944 as if it were yesterday.

Schwartz was interviewed on August 19, 2008, at the Santa Barbara Polo Club, in Carpinteria, California.
