92: Leave the Mask On

92: Leave the Mask On

Feb 6, 1998
Stories about those moments when someone tries to tell you a little bit more about themselves than you'd really rather know.
  • Margy Rochlin sees a new side of her father when, in his seventies, he becomes a monologist like Spalding Gray. Her dad, Fred Rochlin, is a huge hit. He tells stories about his experiences in World War II and enters worlds his grown children never imagined him in. But sometimes Margy finds herself hearing things she'd just as soon not know about him.

    Fred went on to compile his stories in the book Old Man in a Baseball Cap: A Memoir of World War II. (31 minutes)
