Terry Crabtree: So is he any good?
Grady Tripp: No, not yet.
Terry Crabtree: Well, I’m going to read it, anyway.
Grady Tripp: Aw Crabs, C’mon will you? He’s one of my students for Christsakes. Besides, I’m not even sure if he’s…
Terry Crabtree: He IS. I’m sure, take my word for it, I see myself in him.
Grady Tripp: Oh, I’m sure you do.

Two Tons of Turquoise to Taos Tonight (1975), then known as Moment to Moment, was filmed in bits and pieces by Robert Downey Sr. over a period of over two years. It was funded by some of Downey Sr.’s friends, including Jack Nicholson and Norman Lear.
Littered throughout the film in “scenes” that are barely a couple of seconds long, you can see a young Robert Downey Jr. at different ages of his childhood (between 7 to 10 years old).
