Have you heard the urban myths about the alligators in the sewers, the snakes in the toilet bowl or the Neil Armstrong's moon-walk call-out to a mythical Mr. Gorski?

Allegra Huston (actress Anjelica Huston's sister and director John Huston's daughter) wrote a screenplay about the Armstrong myth titled Good Luck Mr. Gorski. Here is the plot synopsis (from the press release from Jonathan Marder & Associates): "Neil Armstrong walked on the moon and famously said, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." He also said, "Good luck, Mr. Gorski." Who’s Mr. Gorski? Was Armstrong a Commie? The CIA went nuts... Mr. Gorski was his next-door neighbor when he was a boy. One night he overheard Mrs. Gorski screaming at her husband, “Oral sex? You want oral sex? You'll get oral sex the day the kid next door walks on the moon!" This is the story of what happened in the Gorski’s' house when Neil walked on the moon."

The film has a production budget of $37,000 and for a mere $20, you can be a listed producer. It will be a very long list with fairly small print, but the bragging rights are great fun especially when your friends ask, "Just what is your film about?"

On Thursday, June 17th, Allegra Huston, Anjelica Huston, Carol Kane, Jonathan Marder, Joan Juliet Buck, Griffin Dunne, Aimee Mullins, John Buffalo Mailer and Trey Speegle hosted a reading of Allegra Huston’s script. Friends of Allegra and her sister Anjelica (who was present through live video feed) portrayed the parts on the screenplay: Joan Juliet Buck read the part of Mrs. Gorski, Griffin Dunne read the part of Mr. Gorski, Amiee Mullins read the part of Mrs. Armstrong and John Buffalo Mailer and Trey Speegle read the parts of the CIA agents. The script was dry and droll and both the audience and the actors had a blast.
