The Chartreuse Goose

Gil Hervatin

Dear Sandivar, Thanks so much for "Gilbert Hervatin who brings a warmth and almost sadness to his bad guy role. He also wears a badly glued on moustache that looks as though it will drop off his face at any moment. SPOILER ALERT: It never does." I was not only the Director of Photography but in charge of make up so I apologize for my mustache almost falling off. Blame that on Jack and Albin. But as per your SPOILER ALERT: It (my mustache) never does. I have to say that, "The Chartreuse Goose" is now in DVD form including, out takes and commentary. Enjoy. Gil

This is a sweet, albeit hard to find, family film. It is an adventure, it is at times very funny and it has two very memorable melodies. I was particularly taken with the Laurel and Hardy-like performance of Albin Sadar (listed as writer and producer of the film as well) and Gilbert Hervatin who brings a warmth and almost sadness to his bad guy role. He also wears a badly glued on moustache that looks as though it will drop off his face at any moment. SPOILER ALERT: It never does. The setting is a farm somewhere in rural Pennsylvania. Bankruptcy surrounds its owners and yet its setting seems to be constantly fighting against any anxiety. I found myself wishing I lived in this beautiful section of the world. The music, written by Sadar and Goose director Jack Rowley is worthy of any multi-million dollar production. The melodies in particular stayed with me for days and encouraged me to pop the video in one more time. I hope The Chartreuse Goose is someday released on DVD. Its the kind of children's movie you hope will fly for many years to come.
