Better Known as Mr Oleson to All, Richard Bull Stars in Canadian New Release on DVD
Everyone watching The Little House On The Prairie (and may be you are still watching it) just loved Richard Bull, better known for his role as the gentle soul, owner of the general store and poor husband stuck with his weird choice, Mr. Oleson. Did you know that he had the lead part in the lovely Canadian M.O.W. A Day In A Life?
The Funny Twist Of Life : Bull's wife in real life, Barbara Collentine stepped in to save the day when the Gloria Stuart from the Titanic who was set to play in the movie, was kept in bed with a bad flu two days before the shoot. As they say, the show must go on, and Mrs. Collentine did a wonderful job. It also created a one in a lifetime moment having real partners in life Bull and Collentine together as the leads of this movie.
You will fall in love with this wonderful cast of old-timers as they are set to charm just about everyone. Some of the best veteran Canadian actors are featured in this lovely tale on self-discovery at any age. Among them, late Emile Genest in one of his very last roles for the small screen. Genest was a monument in Canada having played in over 133 films among which some for Walt Disney in the early days. Sidekicks Vernon Chapman (respected old-timer actor, stage director and writer) and Joy Coghill (Canadian Order of Canada for her stage work) are just a real joy to watch.
Based in Montreal, Canadian born poet and director and independant producer Jean Mercier is better known for 2 lovely family series he wrote, produced and sold internationally (A Heartbeat Away and My Hometown) to over 50 territories.
A Day In A Life is no exception. This film is an evergreen production. It will stay with you like your favorite song for a very very long time.
