Dear Drosophilists,
A number of you have asked me individually about a film that I 
was working on, and now that it's finished, I thought I would 
send out this general message for anyone else who might be 
interested.  The film is called, "Fly Cycle: The lives of a fly, 
Drosophila melanogaster."  It's 40 minutes, and covers such 
things as sexing adults, courtship, mating, the male's love 
song, egg laying, the gametes, embryonic development, the 
three larval stages, dissection of larval salivary glands and 
imaginal discs, pupal stages, and a variety of mutants used 
primarily as markers.  If you're interested, more details are 
given on  Society for Developmental Biology's web site 
It's being published by Sinauer Assoc.  Their web site is:   
My many thanks to those who have shown interest and 
support.  And to my Drosophilist collaborators, I am indeed 
indebted.  Thank you,
