    1. This is a wonderful companion to the film "Morgan's Cake". I have to confess here that I have been in three of Rick Schmidt's films and know Morgan, as well. I watched it for the first time in years and it is still a delightful film to me. If you are a Schmidt fan or a budding filmmaker, you can't go wrong with this volume. Full of quick-wittedness and compassion. Read it!
