Yaqui, Fox and Mose

Terri Crane (screenwriter)

Hollywood: Terri Crane Productions / Sunfire Productions, 1980. Original "pre-production package and script" for an unproduced film called "Yaqui, Fox and Mose," including a separate synopsis.

Included in the "pre-production package" is character information: Fox, half Choctaw Indian, half Irish, a loner in total control of his destiny; Yaqui, an Indian at the end of his rope looking for redemption; and Mose, half Black, half Indian, on the run for a crime he didn't commit. Also included: letters from various productions companies regarding possible crew members, like director Ted Post, cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, Will Sampson as "Yaqui," Philip Michael Thomas as "Mose," producers Richard Kaye, Jay Lovins, and Carol Hughes, music by Carlos Santana, technical personnel, stunt coordinator Bill Hart (letter signed by Hart), wrangle Dick Lundin (letter signed by Lundin), special effect director Johnny James (letter signed by James). Letters are dated 1979 or 1980. Various photocopied advertisements, images of scenery and animals to be used, production data, a shooting schedule, budget detail, promotional ideas, and weather information where the film was to be shot, is also present.

Overall, preproduction for the film went as far as it possibly could, but for unknown reasons, the film was never produced or released.
