Never a Dull Moment
NEVER A DULL MOMENT paints the turbulent life of Sam Waagenaar, a bon-vivant, who many times changed the course of his life, successfully moving from film industry work in the thirties to journalist, singer, actor, war correspondent, finally ending up as a photographer travelling the world after the war. The film is based on Waagenaar’s unpublished autobiography. With a voice-over he reflects on his life, and on a tendency towards optimism that was severely tested more than once.
