Bill Thompson, Indie Film Stalworth and Dear Friend (RIP)
Bill Thompson was truly a mensch. In a business that, at times, can be very cutthroat, Bill stood out as someone who was effective at his job, but somehow managed to be universally liked. He went back and forth between being a film buyer and a film salesperson, bringing along the empathy from having been on both sides of the table.
In this outtake clip, Bill talks about how he got into the business.
