Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

Tom Robbins (novel)
Stephen Geller (screenwriter)

N.p. The Clockworks Company, Circa 1978. First Draft script for an unproduced film, circa 1978, by screenwriter Stephen Geller, who had previously adapted Kurt Vonnegut's 1969 novel "Slaughterhouse-Five" for George Roy Hill's acclaimed 1972 film. From the estate of actress Monique van Vooren.

Based on 1976 novel by Tom Robbins. The history behind Geller's ambitious and massive (182 pages) screenplay is unclear. Entertainment Weekly reported in 1994 that Robert Wusch (producer of George Roy Hill's 1977 "Slap Shot") was attached in 1977, his options having run out in 1978, and in 1978, the New York Times reported Phoebe Larmore (Robbin's literary agent) was attached as Producer, both with Geller as screenwriter.

In 1993 Gus Van Sant made a film version with his own screenplay, starring Uma Thurman and Lorraine Bracco, which was largely panned upon release and has since garnered a cult following.
