*If I'm wrong, I will force myself to listen to "Daydrem Believer" - don't

Excuse me, my little movie database program was wrong. Whoever set it up
entered the credits for the producer and director as Michael Cox.
It's been corrected and disciplined.
My Blockbuster video guide and several postings have set me straight.
Alex Cox is the director; Michael Nesmith is the producer.
Yes, he was a Monkee; later to become heir to his mother's fortune.
She invented white-out and it was later sold to Gillette(sp?) for a
_serious_ piece of change.
