  1. You really don't want to rent this one, even if you can find it. I was an extra in Babes in Toyland with a 13 year-old Drew Barrymore, Keanu Reeves and Richard Mulligan. I got extra work in a few German TV series, as I lived 5 minutes from Bavaria Film Studios in Munich.

  2. Was this after Drew was "clean?"

    My sister, Dad and brother have all been in movies, some that I put them in when I was an NYC agent.

    Like you, a lifetime ago...

  3. No, sadly this was just about the time she was getting into the drugs and alcohol. I didn't see any of that, but she was certainly spoiled and precocious, as was Keanu (then 16). Her mom was definitely a "manager", constantly trying to upgrade her status and complaining about everything and everyone.
