Description
The John Foreman papers span the years 1977-1991 and encompass 1.5 linear feet. The collection consists mainly of scripts, correspondence, and production material from MANNEQUIN TWO: ON THE MOVE (1991) and MILLENNIUM (1989). Also included is material for an unproduced film, ROAD SHOW. This project, which was to star Jack Nicholson and Timothy Hutton, ultimately stalled due to legal complications. There is also correspondence related to an unproduced version of the 1971 novel "Stand On It," a fictional autobiography of Stroker Ace.
