RE: Bad news Structural Engineer ??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
No way.............he was an Architect (probably unlicensed), and a bad one
at that - worked out of his study w/a t-square.  With all those kids, a stay
at home wife and a pathetic maid harrassing him he never got any work done.

>>Name an actor, or movie featuring an engineer in a lead role.<<

Family Affair

Brian Keith's character was a civil engineer working on bridges all around
the world.  I think that makes him a structural engineer.

Subject: Bad news Structural Engineer ??


Attention Fellow Structural Engineers  and others:

Over the past ten years as publicist for SEAOI  I have monitored the 
visibilty woes of engineers.  I have noted the lack of  engineering 
characters in feature motion pictures.

QUICK!!

Name an actor, or movie featuring an engineer in a lead role.

Seldom if ever are engineers cast as central characters.

THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE  !!!!

Next week  (Friday,  July 9th) a new movie, "ARLINGTON ROAD" opens.
The key character portrayed by Tim Robbins (Shawkshank Redemption,
Hudsucker 
Proxy, Bull Durham)  identifies himself as a STRUCTURAL ENGINEER.

Is HE???  We'll have to wait and see.

This suspense drama features terrorist's acts of buildings being blown up.

Is the structural engineer doing it???


WATCH OUT!!!
