“When I was a kid, this was all farmland,” David Ransil likes to reminisce of his childhood in Silicon Valley. Hard to believe a man who denies being north of forty could remember this bygone era. Or that he was raised by wolves on the Pampas of Argentina, as he alternately maintains. True, his odd familiarity with particle physics and computer guts do seem to betray a youth misspent in the company of engineers. But then – where did he pick up yeista-accented Spanish? After a few margaritas, he often claims to dream in iambic pentameter, then backs it up with a spiral notebook of original sonnets penned in his own hand. Plays classical piano? Unsubstantiated rumor. Can fix his own car, and play guitar? Some say it’s true. But clearly, anyone who bats right-handed and throws left has brain-dominance issues.
When asked of his start in Hollywood, tales of directing underwater sequences and stunt-doubling Mark Harmon are among Ransil’s favorites. As is the famous “pinkie ring” scandal that Harmon still tells to this day. Was Ransil really there when co-star John Bennett Perry’s young son, Matthew, got his sag card on the show? Fact or fiction, he tells it like a true raconteur. But when he lists comedy, action, science fiction, medical drama, children’s programming, and even an IMAX film among his body of work, it strains all credibility. Everyone knows if Shakespeare were alive today, he’d be forced to pick: comedy, or drama. In Hollywood, nobody does it all, Will.
True, the WGA seems to authenticate these claims. “MANTIS” and Gene Rodenberry’s “Earth: Final Conflict” were science fiction. “The Crow” is a little harder to peg, with its subtle spiritual subtext. “Jack Of All Trades” was definitely a comedy. But Fox Family’s “Los Luchadores” – can anyone even say that? And “Body & Soul” came and went so fast, who remembers what it was? Medical? Comedy? Heart-rending drama – or all of the above? The show-creator himself scarcely remembers. Henry Thoreau once said, “The unexamined life isn’t worth living.” David Ransil never read that – hell, the mere mention of Thoreau can cost a writer his job in this town. But get him talking, and you’ll notice a strange parallel between this and Ransil’s own philosophy on writing: The unembellished story isn’t worth telling...
