Sad Tidings

It is my sad duty to report that Scarlet Street editor, and one of Tom's greatest fans, Richard Valley has passed away from cancer. He was 58.

Mr. Valley, along with writing partner Jesse Lilley, is credited with debunking the rumor that Tom Graeff starred in Teenagers under the pseudonym of David Love. Their 1993 article featured interviews with Bryan and Ursula pearson, speaking about the film's guerilla production and Tom's mental breakdown.

While Richard's illness prevented him from appearing in an onscreen interview, we corresponded about Tom, and Richard was a big advocate of Tom's work, showcasing his short films at Monster Bash and other conventions throughout the years. He had always hoped to write a follow-up article about Tom and David, but he never got the chance.

Comments and remembrances can be posted at the Scarlet Street Forums.

Richard, you will be missed. God bless.
