Stephen Schochet, a 1980 Ocean View High School graduate, loves to tell stories about Hollywood. So much so that's he's written a book, "Hollywood Stories — Short, Entertaining Anecdotes about the Stars and Legends of the Movies!"

The narrator seemed to know nothing about the Norman Bates look-alike and clammed up completely.
