In memory of Harry Blackstone Jr., who died on this day 19 years ago, I’m posting this photo again.  I met him in Pittsburgh on June 4, 1981, when my father, Jerry Interval, a professional photographer, was hired to take stills of Harry filming a car commercial. I wrote about the experience on my blog a few years ago on the day of his birthday: Harry Blackstone Jr. Born 79 Years Ago Today. Here’s to your immortality, Harry.
