This is a picture of the "One Week" Dollhouse my father and I created in 2001, a detailed two-foot tall, near-exact replica of the slightly misconstructed house created in the classic comedy "One Week." It is complete with the front door attached to the second floor bathroom, and a slightly leaky roof. It even spins. My father, Charles L. Pearson did most of the woodwork from a single piece of ceder, including the inside furniture.
I'm a graphic artist and typesetter living in Picayune, MS, but am better known for my film related websites.

I'm also an academically and internationally published author. I wrote an essay for Cambridge University Press for the book "Buster Keaton's 'Sherlock Jr." called "Playing Detective: Possible Solutions to the Production Mysteries of (what else?) Sherlock Jr."
My writings are on five DVD sets: The Forgotten Films of Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle (Laughsmith Entertainment), Industrial Strength Keaton (Laughsmith), Sherlock Jr. & Three Ages Ultimate Edition (Kino Video), Our Hospitality Ultimate Edition (Kino), and Buster Keaton: The Short Films Collection 1920-1923 (Kino).
