    Crazy From The Heat Manuscript

    The Crazy From The Heat ManuscriptTake a trip with Diamond Dave to the Dongo Islands. This is a working copy to the Crazy From The Heat movie that was never made.
    In Dave's own words from "Crazy From The Heat" the autobiography.
    --------------------------------
    "The idea for the movie was basically a musical with a very left of center plot. There were a number of rewrites, but the general script for Crazy from the Heat was a story about Dave (and keep in mind all these characters are right out of California Girls).
    Landed a 10 million dollar budget for the movie, and there was to be a couple million-dollar director's fee. It was a huge deal, especially since I was first time everything".
    "The entire album of Eat 'Em and Smile was designed to match up to the scenes for the movie that never came to be because, unbeknownst to us, CBS Pictures was in trouble. If I remember correctly, we were about four weeks away from the start date. We had a cast. We had everything made, all the costumes, et cetera. Every shot was storyboarded.
    But CBS was changing hands, parts of it were being eliminated. The boiled the movie division, decided that they didn't want to be in the business anymore. There were some eight pictures I think that were green lighted and setting up to go, ours being one of them.
    I sued CBS. I went to court, got the director's fee. Never did make the picture-- made semi-efforts at shopping it to a couple of other movie companies, but it was something that was born out of imagination and vision."
    --------------------------------
    This script should be taken for what it is, a working copy. Chances are that this would have not been the final script and the storyline would have changed with each rewrite. You can tell by reading this that it is set in the 80's. In Meatballs and Stripes fashion, some of the humor is similar to the comedy's that were appearing at the time. If this movie were made today, obviously it would be dated.

    here is a teaser..
    --------------------------------
    DAVE
    (indicating the sun-block)
    Hey, New York -- some monster seagull just took a huge shit right in the middle of your face!
    PETE
    No, Dave. This is a special hi- protein avocado-‘n’-quaalude tanning mousse. They only sell it in California.
    Pete’s eye catches something out on the water. He nudges Dave, who looks out at it too.
    EXT. BOSTON WHALER - DAY
    A boatload of gorgeous, half-undressed young women. They are giggling and waving toward shore.
    DAVE AND PETE
    Dave is waving happily.
    DAVE
    (waving them over)
    Oh, girls? Girls...?
    THE WHALER
    The Girls are still smiling and waving.
    NYMPH #1
    (sweetly)
    No, thanks! We’re lesbians!
    They all nod, still smiling. The boat sails on.
    DAVE AND PETE
    They can’t believe what they’ve heard. Their faces drop. Meantime Madame Duguay approaches, wearing high heels and a white gauze dress.
    --------------------------------

    For those that are interested, the script was 90 pages long and was OCR scanned by me a few years ago. Here it is in it's condensed form, available to view or print on the web.
    You must be a member of our forums (free) to view the script.
