PERMANENT MIDNIGHT was a little heard and little seen film starring Ben Stiller, who plays Jerry Stahl. Stahl was most famously known as the writer on the 80’s TV-series, ALF, but not because of the talent he brought to that show. Stahl had a remarkably successful writing career in Hollywood that was made all the more remarkable by the fact that he was always high on something. His life eventually came crashing down and he wrote a best-selling book about it that was made into this movie. The following 2 clips are wonderful Ben Stiller moments. In them, he arrives at a story session for a TV show he was writing for high as a kite. Check em out:
