When Richard wouldn't do a second draft, Hal asked for my input and I wrote several new scenes. Email to John F. Barber, 25 February Douglas Avery adds these details. The first incarnation, as Michael Dare said, would have starred Nicholson and Hoffman.
Barber, 17 September Brad Donovan, coauthor, with Brautigan, of the screenplay, Trailerprovides some additional details about Brautigan's involvement with the original screenplay.
Richard got a kick out of the association. Later, he tried to apply for unemployment in California and listed his earnings as a thousand bucks a day, just in case the state could find him suitable employment—a story he told with glee" Brad Donovan.

The gravel road wobbles toward infinity across miles of high plains ranch land. Not much out there but grass, scattered boulders, some fences and distant peaks of the Absaroka Range, which provide just enough scale so you know you aren't driving on a length of white shoelace or the foul line for a spectral and endless baseball game.
In late afternoon, that virtually empty stretch of Swingley Road seemed to be a needless scratch across the pristine landscape. Vehicles came along so infrequently that each one raised virgin dust. I counted three during the hour-long drive to William Hjortsberg's cabin.
The last of those was a Federal Express van. Hjortsberg writes novels "Falling Angels" and screenplays "Legend". He lives alone in a small log house amid the multi-million-dollar ranches and luxury hideaways that pepper the meadows, prairies and foothills southeast of Livingston.
A significant number of landowners in the area—loosely known as Paradise Valley—work in the film industry, television, publishing and various other high-visibility enterprises. They presumably can lower their profiles a bit here, where the trout fishing is thought to be the best in the world and where the horizons provide an illusion that one is separated from the clutter of ordinary commerce a myth readily dashed by the intrusions of fiber optics and satellite transmission.
Montana has become a popular refuge for those who can earn their livings anywhere or who pull down the sort of income that allows nearly unlimited freedom of choice. Hjortsberg, an Easterner who was part of the great westward hippie migration of the '60s, can sit on a bench outside his cabin and let the scenery answer that dense, city-slicker question so frequently heard during calls from L.
A sheer cliff to his right makes the sunset fast-forward into soft shadow, while the valley displays a somehow disquieting picture of eroded rock, pastures littered with huge boulders, vividly green pine forests, the whitecaps of the Boulder River rapids and occasional heron flyovers.
Straight ahead, peaks rising above the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness mark the way toward Yellowstone National Park, some 80 miles distant.
In the past, he would hike the back country and really get into the heart of this paradise, most of which cannot be penetrated by automobile. Now, writing a novel set in the Middle Ages and working on a biography of his late Montana colleague, poet-novelist, Richard Brautigan, Hjortsberg seldom strays far from the cabin.
Hjortsberg keeps track of the neighbors, and he may join them for a spring branding session or get-togethers in the Livingston restaurants and bars. The huge ranch owned by retired Levi Strauss magnate and Oakland Athletics owner Walter Haas stands just across the road.
A few of those people have indulged in excesses of home construction or subdivided their spreads into bizarre land configurations, he complained.
But most have slipped quietly into the community. I've had cougars on my deck.
I've seen moose and bear. It's definitely not the suburbs. First of all, no one judges you. They take you at face value, which I really like.
And neighbors are really neighborly. You can count on them if you need help with something. And likewise you help out whenever asked. I find that to be one of the most humane aspects of living here.
Yet those who study magazines that feature famous personalities will find southwestern Montana mentioned almost as much. Groupies would have difficulty surmounting the determined anonymity of the region, however.The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America, Second Edition by Warren E.
