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?
(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.
