I've known Karl Krogstad since the early 1970's, and have worked with him on a variety of projects over the years. I actually got paid on a couple of them, but that was a bonus. Karl is a friend, and when friends call and say "Let's do this!" Well, you do it. So, Karl and I have done all sorts of stuff from the award winning to the obscure. I even have the poster for a film he never made — it was cheaper to make the poster for RECTAL BLEEDING than to make the film.
My finest contribution to Karl's legend — and I forgot to mention this when recently interviewed for a new documentary about Krogstad — is that I made him a major character in my novel CAPTURE THE SAINT. Karl is not only central to the plot and the twist ending, but more importantly is credited with directing the #1 hit film in America, THE BANDIT. I figured that Karl wouldn't have that distinction in real life, so I might as well bestow that credit upon him in a work of fiction.
