Gene Walz wonders:
"I hate to be the one to ruin the casual conversation of this group with a
question that reduces us to the utilitarian, but I've been asked by a
couple of local movie buffs to explain who a "Greensman" or "Greensperson"
is. This is a new category in screen credits that has evidently appeared in
the last few years and whose origin has escaped my research efforts.
Anybody have a clue?"
Since I don't think it's the caterer who handles the salad bar :-), it ought
to be the person who takes care of landscaping needs in particular scenes.
It assume it will be a vital credit in the new Costner golfing film, TIN CUP!
