Note to moderators: If this violates HTF policy, please delete this message. I just thought that some members might find it interesting that one of their fellow HTFers has written a book. You might have already learned about this in my signature, but now the book is finally out and I'm very proud of it. Over the past two years I have spent quite a bit of time writing, researching and interviewing for my book. It's about Saturday Night Live writer/filmmaker Tom Schiller. Among the people I interviewed are Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase (all three very cool dudes - especially Murray). I even got to have dinner with Murray, which was a dream come true. I also interviewed Mike Myers, Zach Galligan, Teri Garr, Victoria Jackson, Lorne Michaels, Judy Belushi and many others. And of course Tom Schiller. The book focuses on Tom's career, which started with a 30-minute film he made with Henry Miller. Then he joined Saturday Night Live in 1975, and between 1977 and 1980 he directed about a dozen short films. You might remember a 90 year-old John Belushi dancing on the graves of his cast mates in the ironic short "Don't Look Back in Anger." Or Gilda Radner in the Fellini homage "La Dolce Gilda." You might also remember one of SNL's classic sketches - "Samurai Hotel." It was the first of Belushi's Samurai sketches, and it was written by Schiller. In 1982 Tom made a feature film with Zach Galligan and Bill Murray called "Nothing Lasts Forever." It was a black-and-white sci-fi comedy, but it was never released. I thought it was brilliant - so did the Cannes Film Festival, which invited it two years in a row (sadly, MGM wouldn't allow it to show). The whole story behind how the film ended up unreleased is covered in the book. It was a very sad experience for not only Tom, but also Lorne Michaels, since this was his very first film. Schiller went back to SNL in 1988 where he made short films until 1994. The highlight of this era was "Love is a Dream", a romantic musical starring Phil Hartman and Jan Hooks. So, if you are into Saturday Night Live or classic films, definitely give this a try. You can get it at amazon at a nice discount, or you can order it directly through my site if you want a signed copy On a similar topic - are there other HTF members who have written books? Again, sorry if this falls under some rule of 'self-promotion.'
