Hi ... the movie "Stand By Me" came from Stephen's short story "The Body". It was based loosely on our real lives together, with "Teddy" (Corey Feldman) being Stephen ... and Vern (Jerry O'Connel) being me, Frank... Thank you Jerry for doing such a great portrayal ...especially around that campfire, showing my spunky boldness so well... I had a sriped shirt like that too.. Stephen, Jim, Lewis, and I had 6 years of schooling together and walked home on the railroad tracks often.... email@example.com Too bad the real 4 weren't in that previous reunion with the acting 4 (mmmm what an idea!!!!)
