Getting to know the real life Calvin and Waynette changed everything.
I sat down to write a feature screenplay but a giant multi-part behemoth came out instead,
but it's a behemoth that I believe in.
There is a great deal of actual dialogue and actual events in this screenplay.
This rough draft of Calvin's history is designed as a guidepost for others to follow.
I always imagined that at least one writer would come in after me.
This is for you.
Calvin Parker Day in Pascagoula. The city dedicated a public monument
upon the exact spot where the encounter took place 45 years earlier.
