Those New York ’Nineties—Film & TV (thankless roles and buttock-clenching performances)

This entire menu here above called Those New York ’Nineties is just for fun—a frisky little soufflé laying no claim to profundity, presented for moral instruction alongside The Imagination Thief. My presence in the 114 film/TV projects and other items of footage in the menu probably adds up to something like one full B-movie’s worth of performance, as a rough estimate. Here below is just the “Film & television” component in particular, but a more general introduction and an insufficient apology for Those New York ’Nineties as a whole is at Those New York ’Nineties – Introduction. (See also my pages at the Internet Movie Database and the Oz TV Wiki.)
