"Lookin' Up", a film our beloved Marvin Kaplan worked on before his passing


Marvin was working on a film he wrote and in which he had a small part when he died. It is called, "Lookin' Up". The film was finished under the careful direction of Johnny Crear. The movie stars Steve Guttenberg of "Ballers" fame and a lot of other work..

The Kaplan-Loring Foundation is sponsoring a week of showing the movie. If you are a fan of Marvin's work and want to see
