Stage and film actor Hal Holbrook will be in San Antonio this week, and I found out, for nowhere near the first time.
"I started out in Texas," he remembered. "About 200 towns and villages in Texas."
Holbrook is talking about his one man Mark Twain stage show he wrote in college, then immediately after school, he began touring around the country. It was an amazing education for him, with lessons he's kept in the years since.
"I learned very clearly that you couldn't count on anything as an actor. And that I could be unemployed at any moment."
