The Last Good Kiss

N.p. N.p., Circa 1979. Draft script for an unproduced film, likely a first draft.

Based on James Crumley's 1978 gritty masterwork of crime fiction, featuring Crumley's recurring detective C.W. Sughrue scouring America's sleazy underbelly in search of a girl gone missing from Haight-Ashbury a decade earlier.

After Walter Hill's critical and commercial success with "Warriors" (1979), and the critical success of "The Long Riders" (1980), he focused his energies on adapting "The Last Good Kiss," in which he was hoping to cast Nick Nolte. Unfortunately the project was shelved and Hill went on to make "Southern Comfort," a critical success but commercial failure. Hill continued to shop "The Last Good Kiss" over the next decade without success.
