The failures Dal went through are profiled including: Cupid Computer, one of the original computer dating services (1967), Dr. Ezariah’s Little’s Traveling Light show which turned Drive-in Movie theatres into Drive-in Discotheques (1969); Aquarack, a waterbed store in Harvard Square (1971); Beelzebub’s Ice Cream Parlor, in Venice Beach, California (1975).

He Executive Produced four Iraq War Movies (War Tapes, Iraq For Sale, Meeting Resistance, The Ground Truth) and is now distributing the movie “War Child”, the life story of Emmanuel Jal, a Sudanese child soldier.
