Roger L Simon (source and screenwriter) THE BIG FIX Final Draft Shooting Screenplay


Vintage original film script.  Universal City: Universal Pictures, October 19, 1977.  Quarto, printed wrappers, mimeo, brad bound, 120 pp., title lettered on spine, just about fine.
THE BIG FIX was the first of four novels, set in Los Angeles and featuring dope-smoking, long-haired, Jewish private detective Moses Wine.  Simon adapted it to the screen for a film released in 1978, with Richard Dreyfuss in the lead role.  It is a contemporary neo-noir film, in which Wine attempts to solve a mystery involving once-radical 60’s  student activists.  The film is drenched in disillusionment, and is one of various films of the 70’s New American Cinema which attempted to make sense of the recent past.
