How I Broke My Leg and Fell in Love
“How I Broke My Leg and Fell in Love” is a neo-noir comedy short written and directed by Harvard student Daniel Garber, in which Dan Gorham plays the lead, Nick – a smooth-talking but not-as-smooth-thinking private investigator. It was shot on 16mm black and white film to give it the grainy, noir quality of the old detective movies of the 30s, 40s & 50s (requiring most shots to be done in one take, due to high cost of film).
