Cal Marotta

I remember Hugo Ripp during a b&w show out of Father Divines (109 st. & 5th,ave). One of the terrible cameras, whose make I can't remember, broke down. Hugo tried to fix it but couldn't. At the time.He became so frustrated he kicked it and it worked again.Many years later at one of the retirement lunches, which he almost never came to, he reminded me of the incident and I told him the camera worked because it didn't want to be kicked again. He said he wished he knew he had that talent because there were several people he wanted to kick over the years.
