Penelope Spheeris

Danny (Shredder) Weizmann, Flipside, 1982

PENELOPE SPHEERIS is the director of the now quite old L.A. punk film The Decline Of Western Civilization, and she turns out to be a lively talker who gesticulates and shouts half of what she says. Besides that she's the coolest adult (senior citizen, ha ha) in all of L.A. This interview was conducted by Shredder, Teresa and Grant Miner.
