billy can you hear me?
actor michael sachs had a film career of twelve years. of the fourteen roles he played he is best remembered for 1972's 'slaughterhouse-five.' his portrayal of 'billy pilgrim' in the time traveling tale of a true innocent was so lovely. actress valerie perrine was unforgettable as 'montana wildhack', the young sex film star who is abducted and sent to live on another planet with 'billy.'
i am on a delightful, insightful, and deeply inspiring kurt vonnegut kick. Although my personal favorite so far is 'the sirens' of titan', 'slaughterhouse-five' is ranked the 18th greatest English novel of the 20th century by Modern Library. it is generally recognized as Vonnegut's most influential and popular work.
