Cast & Crew
Allan A Goldstein
An adaptation for television of Sam Shepard's play about the antagonistic relationship of two brothers, Lee, a slovenly drifter and cat burglar, and Austin, an up-and-coming screenwriter. Set in rural California, the action begins when Lee turns up unexpectedly at his mother's house, now being tended by his more "stable" brother. In the course of a few days, they reverse roles after Lee "sells" a story of an old-fashioned western to a Hollywood producer and then tries to get his more talented sibling to write the script.
