Maurice Hatton (1938–1997) was a British screenwriter and film director. His films include Praise Marx and Pass the Ammunition (1970), Long Shot (1978), Nelly’s Version (1983), American Roulette (1988) and Satan at His Best (1995).
Amidst the who’s who of the 1977 Edinburgh International Film Festival, our heroes Neville Smith and Charles Gormley accept a lift from Stephen Frears, discuss “kissing and cuddling” with Jim Haynes, consult Alan Bennett, and pitch their script to Wim Wenders, John Boorman and other luminaries. This is a unique opportunity to take a retrospective look at both this fascinating film and EIFF in the 1970s.
