  1. Lennie Grimaldi, what are the chances you are not related to this man? Stephen Grimaldi premiered the film at the Bijou. Brilliant for getting it out there. The film made a total of $3800 on one screen and Stephen Grimaldi is the writer, producer and the head of Scarlet Productions. The trailer looks great. For a first production of note, very impressive. Reviews not too kind.
