Local actor screwed over by Will Smith's "Happyness"

Posted By on Fri, Nov 2, 2007 at 11:06 AM

Nice that Will Smith got so much recognition for playing a struggling San Franciscan in the 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness. But what about the plight of an actual San Franciscan -- a local actor named Peter -- in pursuit of a little recognition for being in the film itself? Griffshow offers this hilarious short doc called The Pursuit of a Credyt, focusing on poor Peter and a mighty slight by Will Smith, for your Friday comedy viewing pleasure. – Jennifer Maerz

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
