Trivia: Born in England in 1956 and adored by Crow T. Robot, KIM CATTRALL also has had success in Canada and the USA. Some of her films are: 1981-Porky's; 1984-Police Academy; 1986-Big Trouble in Little China; 1987-Mannequin; 1990-Bonfire of the Vanities; and 1991-Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Plus she was great in the TV mini-series Wild Palms and Robin Cook's Invasion. Kim's recollections of CITY LIMITS include always filming at night in a dangerous part of L.A. with the ever-present stench from a nearby dogfood factory.

It's amazing that DEAN DEVLIN, who also appeared in the movies My Bodyguard and The Wild Life, would later become a big Hollywood producer, bringing us such mindless, noisy blockbusters as Independence Day and Godzilla. (Daddy-O must admit, though, that he did like Stargate). Premiere magazine ranked Devlin and ID4 director Roland Emmerich No. 44 on 1997's Power List of the 100 Most Influential People in the Hollywood Industry. Be very afraid.

Beginning his career as a keyboard player, MITCHELL FROOM has produced recordings for such acts as Los Lobos, Del Fuegos, The Latin Playboys, Crowded House, Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson, and his wife, Suzanne Vega. His film scores include: Slamdance, Dr. Caligari, Cafe Flesh, and Night Dreams, as well as the title song for Tomorrow Never Dies. Froom's most recognizable work is the theme from the TV show Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
