Now Playing:

A Visit From Scarface

by V. Cate and Duke Ernsberger
Directed by Keith Brown

It's 1932, and the famous Hollywood writer Ben Hecht has just finished his screenplay for a movie produced by Howard Hughes called SCARFACE, loosely based on the real life story of Al Capone. Hecht's agent shows up at his Hollywood apartment to get the script, but it's missing! Capone has sent a couple of his associates to have a little "talk" about the script with Ben. The action and dialog flies faster than bullets as Hecht tries to get the script back while dodging the gangsters, his agent, a blond starlet, a woman form the movie censor board, a drunk neighbor, and the house detective.

The Story:
Scottie Templeton's a charming, irresponsible fellow. A sometime Broadway press agent and former scriptwriter, he's everyone's friend, nobody's hero and a great womanizer who's managed to live over fifty years without taking anything seriously including love, marriage, and fatherhood. Life's been one continuous gag. But at fifty-one, he finds the script's been rewritten as a tragedy; he is fatally ill. His son Jud, alienated by years of neglect, comes to visit. Scottie's one concern is to make friends with his son, for everyone else adores Scottie including his ex-wife, his friend and boss, and his doctor, and after a bitter, revealing confrontation, father and son are reconciled. And it is Jud who gets Scottie to agree to be rehospitalized for treatment and then organizes a giant tribute to his father in a theatre.
