'74. But I came close again in '94 when I was developing a Pay-per-View Tribute for Elvis similar to what I did for Dylan & Columbia. Thousands of Elvis' fans mailed us checks for tickets to the show because they knew This Was IT . . The Comeback. Sadly his management didn't think it was funny. But I did, so I wrote the screenplay.
Uh huh, and it was daily gonzo. e.g. Evel Knievel and Telly Savalas. The Secret Service crashed (and ruined) our New Years Eve Party at Belushi's house, where Hunter Thompson kicked Penny Marshall in the crotch, and Cher slapped me when I mistook her for Ron Wood.
Like planning The Normandy Invasion: Guys with guns, a lot of lawyers and a sea of Chicago's Finest. Hey! Frank wants a can of Campbell's Chicken 'n Stars. What, the Dom Perignon ain't good enough? With Frank, there's always wreckage in the fast lane.
