Actress Julie Adams (b. Betty May Adams, Oct. 17, 1926) passed away Sunday, February 3, 2019, in Los Angeles, at the age of 92.
After being crowned Miss Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1946, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
Ms. Adams started working in movies in 1949. Eventually, she appeared in over 50 films with some of Hollywood’s greatest stars including Charlton Heston, Glenn Ford, Rock Hudson, Tony Curtis, and Elvis Presley.
I’m frequently asked to read and critique screenplays.
Most scripts by inexperienced writers are pretty terrible. This is to be expected. The craft of screenwriting is demanding and it usually takes several years and quite a few scripts to master the form.
There are two central problems I see over and over again. And it’s worth pointing them out to those who aspire to write scripts that have any hope of being produced.
