I was hoping to get to the Ackermansion some day...  Bluesad  I have a friend who got to go, met Forry, and got a personal tour.  Apparently Mr. Ackerman is as gracious as he is obsessed with all things fantastical.  In my thoughts everyday, 4SJ

Apparently Ackerman is doing a bit better, but still seriously ill.

Some of his friends/fans in the film industry have actually contacted Kino and are working on getting him a special viewing of the restored METROPOLIS!

This is bad... I can't really confirm for sure, but from another forum, a trusted source (Someone actually in the industry) told me he had actually died http://dustinmcneill.proboards50.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=958&page=1 Bluesad

EDIT: Seems like it's true... RIP http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/herocomplex/2008/12/forrest-j-acker.html
