SHOOT THE SUN DOWN is a film I wrote, produced and directed in 1976. It starred Christopher Walken and Margot Kidder right before their career making roles in DEER HUNTER and SUPERMAN. The film had a brief theatrical release in 1978, and  at that time, could be seen on T.V. as well as VHS. It has now been remastered in high definition, DVD and Blu-ray. This special 35th anniversary release will be available on November 12. For more information and background about the film, please visit our SHOOT THE SUN DOWN Facebook page. There will also be a special one time screening of the film on November 7, at 7:30, at the AERO Theater in Santa Monica, California.

    This is great news. I’m really looking to my ordered DVD arriving in the post and seeing the remastered Director’s cut. The original poster for the film is still decorating my office. :-)

  6. You could spend many hours searching through all
    of the free printable coupons they have to offer. For example, if the trendy backpack is $20
    more than the one you have picked out, agree to pay the same amount toward the backpack that the backpack
    you chose would have cost. To gain understandable reasons, usually the company
    rebranded even though Shop – NBC in August of 2000.

  7. When you’re going to rent a comic, think about these tips
    as a useful guide, pointing in the fitting direction.

    No matter what your field, it helps to know what you’re good at, but it also helps to recognize what others are
    good at. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could take a magic pill and have a perfect relationship.

  8. True, there are comedians that cuss a lot, but you got to earn that right before you do
    that. It is an industry norm that you offer a hotel
    room for the comedian at the same time. He hosted Comedy Central’s'The Man Show’ as well as the ubiquitous pseudo-porn for the
    sexually crippled, ‘Girls Gone Wild’, both solely and shamelessly for financial gain.

  9. Great goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just
    extremely magnificent. I actually like what you have acquired here, certainly like what you’re saying and the way in which you say it.
    You make it enjoyable and you still take care of to keep it smart.
    I can’t wait to read far more from you. This is actually
    a wonderful site.

  10. wonderful put up, very informative. I wonder why
    the other experts of this sector do not notice this.
    You should continue your writing. I’m confident, you have a
    huge readers’ base already!
