JET SET

Buzzing about the Amsterdam airport, a hungry, red-eyed Fly happened to alight on the seat right next to Memphis Film and Video honcho Lynn Sitler, who was returning from some little film festival in France called Can or Cannoise or something rather quaint and provincial. Anyhoo, Lynn had been whooping it up and bling-blinging at a wild yacht party thrown by Troma Films to honor Memphis trash- wave filmmaker John Michael McCarthy and his enduring cult classic, Superstarlet A.D. They went all out, Sitler says of the Troma bash. They had all the Troma characters [such as the Toxic Avenger] running around, and they even hired some girls to make out for the cameras. They must have hired actresses, though, because there wasn t really much of a spark there.
