I Wake Up Screening
George Stevens was the first to know - months before Frank D. Gilroy had even an inkling. As they scouted locations for The Only Game in Town in 1968, Stevens repeatedly handed Gilroy his viewfinder to consider possible scenes. Asked to explain why he was so insistent on this procedure, Stevens answered with certainty, "You're going to direct some day." Gilroy recalled Stevens' words two years later when, unhappy with the limited role of screenwriter, he optioned Desperate Characters by Paula Fox, determined not only to adapt her novel for the screen but to direct the film. Fortunately for film buffs, film historians, film students, and prospective independent film producers, Gilroy is a compulsive diarist who wrote I Wake Up Screening! while he made four independent feature films - each accorded three stars in Leonard Maltin's TV Movies and Video Guide - for a total investment of two million dollars (for all four films!). These intimate logs of the making of Desperate Characters, Once in Paris, The Gig, and The Luckiest Man in the World show clearly that a film school that doesn't include in its curriculum discussions of negotiating with the Teamsters and of raising money by independent producers is leaving out vital parts of the film-making process. Because Gilroy wrote the scripts, raised the money, assembled the production team, directed, opened each of the four films, and even ventured into the murky world of distribution, I Wake Up Screening! is a vast repository of information about film making in general and independent film making in particular. It is not recommended for anyone who wishes to preserve a fairy-tale notion about feature film making. When Gilroy first consideredpublishing these logs, his wife encouraged him. "Do it, " she said. "If it stops one person from following in your footsteps it will be worthwhile."
A sixteen-year old illiterate woman cares for the elderly rector of a tumbledown church in a mountain hamlet, but when the town hall across from the church is converted into a dance hall, the narrator is recruited for some of the hall's finer clientele
The Coming of the Saucers
The whole world has heard about flying saucers. But do you really know how it all got started? Do you know who first saw the flying saucers? Meet pilot Kenneth Arnold. In "The Coming of the Saucers," Arnold describes - in breathtaking detail - his incredible sighting of the flying saucers on June 24, 1947. Arnold also recounts his harrowing investigation into the infamous Maury Island Incident, which ended with the deaths of two Air Force intelligence officers after they flew past Mount Rainier - where Arnold had seen the discs. After being followed by Men in Black, Arnold discovered that his hotel room had been bugged, and that he had been manipulated by CIA asset Fred Lee Crisman, an eventual suspect in the JFK assassination. Following these and other strange, spooky occurrences, Arnold barely escaped a plane crash himself! Arnold was a private man, who rarely lectured or made public appearances. "The Coming of the Saucers" is thus a rare, primary-source document of importance to all UFO researchers and enthusiasts. Not only is this the story of the first two major UFO sightings in the U.S., but it is also the birth of the Men in Black mythos. "A sobering tale about what happens to those who know too much..." -Gray Barker, "They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers" "The key to understanding all that has gone on in ufology, particularly the relationship between UFOs and the MIB..." -John Keel, "Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind" "An amazing array of factual evidence that still informs us today..." -Ray Palmer, Fate Magazine
