    6 August looks great. For those that don't know about the Yippie invasion of DL - quite interesting: Here's some photos and here's a page from the Anaheim PD which talks about it.

    Those are all right except for the following:

    4) When did Michael Ovitz resign from the Walt Disney Company?
    Dec. 27, 1996
    I'm looking for the date of Ovitz' resignation became effective, not when he announced it.

    BTW, The Buddy Holly Story was directed by the same director.
