Wittliffs at Work
Wittliff is currently re-writing the script for Steven Spielberg's movie project Arkansas, about sharecroppers in the 1870s, and has negotiated a deal with ABC to write a six-hour miniseries titled Undaunted Courage, based on Stephen Ambrose's book about the Lewis & Clark expedition. National Geographic has become involved in producing the ABC project and will co-produce, along with Wittliff, a screenplay by John Graves based on Graves' novella The Last Running.
Meanwhile, proceeds from the ongoing sale of Wittliff's photographs taken during the filming of Lonesome Dove continue to be funneled into the purchase of new photographs for the Wittliff Gallery. Two marvelous Cartier-Bressons have just joined the collection. Sales must be good. -- R.S.C.
