"Jeff blames his parents for his addiction to movies. At the age of five in Memphis, Tennessee, he was allowed to stay up and watch "The Wolf Man" on the Late Night Show. It scared the bejabbers out of him and gave him nightmares but also led to a lifetime fascination with film. His other formative movie experience that same year was seeing Elvis Presley in "Love Me Tender" with his father during a trip to New Orleans and being disturbed over the ending where Elvis's ghost sings the title song. Born in Dalton, Georgia, Jeff has also lived in Memphis; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Richmond, Virginia; Athens, Georgia; and Atlanta. He graduated from the University of Georgia with a journalism degree and for a while dabbled in radio, television and newspapers before landing one of his favorite jobs, working as a film programmer at Films Inc., a non-theatrical distributor (no longer in business) that rented 16mm movies to colleges, libraries, film societies, etc. Provided with a 16mm projector and a warehouse full of films, he was able to indulge himself with the Janus and Audio Brandon collections plus the film libraries of 20th-Century-Fox, Paramount, RKO, Warner Bros. and many other studios. When the non-theatrical film market eventually collapsed due to the rising video industry (Blockbuster and their clones), Jeff began working as a freelance writer and started contributing to tcm.com." - Profile From MovieMorlocks.com
