    Father of Mario Van Peebles
    To avoid working with Hollywood unions on 'Sweet Sweetback's Baad Asssss Song,' he told people he was making a porno movie.
    After making three very good films around 1970, he failed to come out with another commercial or critical success.
    He's acted in some big-budget garbage, notably the box-office disaster 'Jaws: The Revenge.'
    He served in the Air Force.
    He was a successful stock trader before becoming a film-maker.
    He can talk intelligently on many subjects.
    He frequently works with his son, actor/director Mario Van Peebles.
    He taught Mario that 'Hollywood isn't predominantly black or white - it's predominantly green.'
