Dorfus Maneuver at California Extreme

THAT’S ME … Jonathan Andrew McDorfus… IN 1983 Greydon Clark cast me in Joysticks. This 1980’s Classic I actually saw at the Palmdale Drive Inn when it was released. Time Magazine’s review said, “The best way to describe this film is the character played by Jim Greenleaf when he not playing his joystick he’s letting wind.”

This Movie took us thirteen days to create. The first week in release it was the fifth highest grossing film of that week. Dubbed a cult movie of the 80’s because it was a microcosm  of the arcade world where the youth of towns and cities across america grow-up.

I want to thank some twenty-eight years all the followers, from Facebook to Youtube, who have shared with me their fondness for my work in this film. All I can say is, “DORFUS MANEUVER!” as I raise my arm and leg to you. Hope to see you at California Extreme 2010. Saturday night there will be a showing of  “JOYSTICKS” followed by a Q&A.

My hat is off to Jeri Ellsworth and her team for pulling this together. Greydon Clark and I will be a booth to take pictures sign autographs and something very special will also be there…(can’t tell ya…you’ll just have to be there.)

This is the classic scene that is the body of my work. ROTFL!!!
