the late seventies I personally pitched this screen play then titled "Death
Turtle Mountain" with out benefit of an agent. Now That I am retired from the
industry, DJ for 15 years. Sound Man for Warner Brothers 25 years
I have decided to take it off the shelf and try again this time on the internet.
Here are a few excerpts from those who read the script or synopsis back in the 70s
