by Thomas, Ross writing as Oliver Bleeck (novel); J. Lee Thompson (director); Barry Beckerman (screenwriter); Charles Bronson, John Houseman, Jacqueline Bisset, Maximilian Schell (starring)
Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1975. Draft script for the 1976 film "St. Ives," here under the working title, "St. Ives' Big Score." Brief notation in holograph ink on the title page. Based on the 1972 crime novel, "The Procane Chronicle," by Ross Thomas (writing as Oliver Bleeck). The first of no fewer than ten films director Thompson would make with badass Charles Bronson, and ironically, one of the last produced by a major studio. The pair would go on to make taut, violent potboilers such as "10 to Midnight" (1983), "The Evil That Men Do" (1984), and "Murphy's Law" (1986). Raymond St. Ives (Bronson) is a novelist drawn back into the world of his former profession of crime reporting by wealthy Abner Procane (Houseman). St. Ives is hired to locate stolen documents with ties to the local mob. Janet Whistler (Bisset) is an associate of Procane's accompanying St. Ives, but her motives are vague.
