About this submission

Union Corporal Lance Taylor “LT” is scaling Big Bear, to reclaim his wife, who was just kidnapped by the notorious outlaw, Black Wolf, an unsavory character of vehement reputation and reprehensible disposition, a killer of women and children. The Confederate Colonel Rex Beauregard, Belle Star, and a quiet man from the Pinkertons, also have a business interest in Mrs. Esther Taylor, as do other nefarious persons. When the final play of cards is out, no hand is innocent, and with a great deal of gold involved, perhaps “LT” isn't the perfect soldier after all.

***

"An Elegie for Esther" is the fabled prequel to "Deplorable Charades", one of the last sprawling western classics, on a doomed frontier, during a time when the outlaw was ending.

His first film as a working actor was Big Bad Love (2001),  was featured in  the establishing shot of the picture, and got hooked ever since.  He is a Latin scholar, and shot his first film at 12, a Swords & Sandles epic titled  "Marcus", used as a final Latin project, complete with English subtitles, and lots of action choreography.  At 17, he played a solo violin concert with virtuoso pianist Alex Mullen, featuring the works of Chopin, Mozart, Berlioz, Debussy, Sarasate and Paganini, and graduated from the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music, in Memphis, Tennessee. A four time Academic All American, and three time Tennessee state gymnastics champion, Bobby acquired his diploma from Laurel Springs High School, and received his bachelor's degree from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles, where he filmed his third picture "Lucid Fame", and now pursues his master's, at the David Lynch School of Cinematic Arts.  A native of Los Angeles, he grew up all over the planet, with his father in the US Navy, the family spent several summers in Hawaii, Denmark, London, and Jamaica, yet also spent time on his mother's side in the blissful farmlands of Virginia.  He's a citizen of the globe, but as American as it gets. He enjoys archery, opera, rock and roll, composing, writing phantasie tales, and spends time in nature. He will have films that span the globe utilizing artists of every nation and creed, from sprawling westerns, to a cult classic spy show, to period pieces and authentic adaptations of Hemingway, Lovecraft, Poe, Wilde, to even the Greecian fables of old.
