CROWNING INFAMY (1978)

The first one I wrote - a wordy Western about the Johnson County War. It was penned in a Screenwriting class at UCLA.

Michael Cimino's film, HEAVEN'S GATE, was based on the same historical events - but didn't take advantage of my 147-page script, for some reason!

SCOUSERS (1978)
$7.99
TIn 1978, I wrote this 'last chance' tale of Liverpudlian musicians who become robbers to fund their album. Read in horror my attempts to write a script in dialect! Nevertheless, Lindsay Anderson was interested in directing it.

The script won the Jack Nicholson Screenwriting Prize at UCLA, which helped to fund EDGE CITY. It is a massive 147 pp, which is far too many pages for a good screenplay. (acPDF2)

TOO KOOL TO DIE (1980)
