SOME TRIVIAL STUFF

MENTOR HUEBNER had multiple interests, talents, wives, attractions, jobs, friends, contacts, connections and opinions and as a consequence a lot of stuff happened to him and he happened to a lot of stuff ~ leaving a trail of certain little known facts, 'Big Stuff & Little Stuff', that are combined here to help paint a more accurate post impressionistic picture of the painter beyond any of the usual necessary biographical data.

*

Mentor Huebner liked rich and creamy ice-cream.

Sometimes he ate a bowl of ice cream late at night, sometimes at midnight.
The bowl wasn't a dessert bowl. It was a soup bowl. Since he always worked late ~ for him midnight was just a little after dinner. Could be boxing and running kept him trim even into his later years as he never gained excessive weight. He was always in good shape.

*

Mentor Huebner liked cats.

Animals liked Mentor. Cats loved Mentor. He always owned many. And there was always at least one cat who would sit on his shoulder all through breakfast while he drank coffee and read the LA Times.

*

Mentor Huebner, as a kid, beat actor, Alan Ladd in a track meet.

Alan Ladd came in second to Mentor in a track meet competition between two high schools: Eagle Rock and North Hollywood. Mentor's record at Eagle Rock wasn't broken for 17 years. He was a track star.

*

Mentor Huebner was a track star once again while filming on location for the film The Longest Day.

During the filming of the Normandy Invasion for Zanuck, some of the crew for the Longest Day would frequently engage in spontaneous lunch hour races on the beach. Mentor was a winner time after time.

*

Mentor traveled all over the world. Either because he was sent on location for a film production. Or sometimes he traveled just for fun.

He explored every state of the union. He visited Museums locally, nationally and internationally.

While in the different cities, he painted landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes in oil, water color and crayon. No matter where he went he returned saying he liked the "light" in Los Angeles better than anywhere else in the world.

He was a sophisticated world traveler. And due to his success he could live anywhere of his choosing. However, Mentor never left his hometown.

He always lived in close proximity to the neighborhood of his birth, spending his entire lifetime living in and around the northeast of Los Angeles ~ Highland Park, Eagle Rock and Mount Washington.

His expressed his rationale succinctly, " I like it! "

*

CAT'S EYE & IMDB

Mentor Huebner was Cat's Eye's Primary Production Illustrator, Designer, Designer of Special Entities, Visual Effects Designer, Conceptual Designer and Visual Choreographer for the entire film's Complicated Sequences and created Conceptual Drawings and Conceptual Choreographed Story Boards from start to finish for this film's entire Visual necessities.

He worked closely with the Director Lewis Teague and Producer Dino de Laurentiis. Many times, just for the ride, to deliver 'emergency work' I went along with Mentor to Teague's apartment in Hollywood.

You may only find this information on our website. Sadly IMDB categories are by necessity much too narrow and do not often apply to the work accomplished or credited. And IMDB is dependent upon someone, an 'expert someone' ~ to 'give them the facts'.

At times I have had to be that 'expert someone'.

It would be best, but impossible for IMDB to add a category such as: Primary Production Illustrator, Designer of Visual Effects, Designer, Conceptual Designer and Visual Choreographer of Complicated Sequences, Conceptual Designer of Complicated Story Boards, Designer of Special Entities.

Or perhaps allow multiple credits. One click in one little circle is it!

(In the film "The War of the Roses", with Douglas and Turner, Danny De Vito saw to it that Mentor was given two lines of Screen Credits because one word would not have been sufficient. But everyone in the movie industry is not that altruistic. )

The titles IMDB is forced to offer on the limited forms are cryptic.

Consequently the lessor of all evils must be chosen and can never be exact. Sometimes there are one or more talents sharing the same credit title. It looks bad. It's misleading.

If you have to squeeze into a "Me Tarzan, you Jane" category, it limits you.

Whenever an artist, as in the case of Mentor, happens to be a Master Motion Picture Artist and creates all the art needed for a particular feature film, a one credit title is not sufficient and correct multiple titles are too cumbersome.

Frequently Mentor is not listed correctly for a particular film. However, in the case of Cat's Eye, (1985), as of January 18, 2004, Mentor has not been listed ~ at all.
