Millard Kaufman, who passed away on March 14, 2009, at the age of 92, accomplished something maybe even more significant than his two Academy Awards nominations. And that is the fact that he managed to sustain a writing career for seven decades.
The "Spec" production team presents a segment tribute to Millard, extracted
from footage from their feature length documentary about the cult, culture, and commerce of spec screenplay writing.
Last June, Millard was generous enough to to contribute an interview for this movie and here are a few excerpts and his take on "a life well-written."
And his voice lives on in the novel, "A Bowl of Cherries," published at age 90, as well as a future novel to be published later this year.
A special thank you goes out to his 66 years, Lorraine Kaufmann.
