I had the great opportunity to see Jerry Maren years ago when he attended a screening of his film Dahmer vs Gacy that was screening at a horror festival I had helped launch. He was there with his wife Elizabeth (who sadly died not too long after) and a big plastic lollipop adorned with a colored bow.
I found him charming and engaging – and growing up on The Wizard of Oz as all of us have, it was a true pleasure to meet him. He was a treasure no doubt and he will be missed. Thank you for the memories Jerry!
I found this picture of the three of us that I have always cherished, as well as the video of the performance he did when he sang The Lollipop Guild to his wife!
