HIGH DESERT

Log Line: Women and children are taken hostage by escaped convicts.

One of the women is a vacationing police officer;

one of the convicts is actually a gunrunner Britain is coming to claim

and he needs to get gone.  The cop tries to prevent him.  

Problem is, they fall for one another.

​​Sheriff Sam is called from his vacation when an old miner is found wandering through the desert chanting, "Yucca Man!", his hair turned white as flour. As more victims show up with white hair and chanting about Yucca Man, both the military and sheriff Sam investigate the wild tales of a large Joshua Tree rampaging across the desert.  But Yucca Man is no wild tale to General Store who, as a private, was part of an experiment to transplant a soldier's brain into a cactus.  

Yucca Man!

The stakes get higher when Yucca Man falls for Bambi, the sheriff's daughter, and abducts her after killing off her friends. Enlisting the help of Bambi's new friend, a college boy named Biff who survived the Yucca Man assault, sheriff Sam sets out to rescue his daughter from the deadly succulent. But Yucca Man has an axe of his own to grind as he goes after General Store in a final showdown that Store loses.  It all comes down to sheriff Sam, the college boy Biff and Bambi herself who now insists she's a superhero who can break more than just the heart of a wayward plant. Finally, utilizing a lighter and Bambi's travel-size hairspray can, Yucca Man is set afire and flees the old mine shaft where he has kept Bambi prisoner. All the victims at the hospital come to their senses, their hair colors returning to normal and are ready to go home. Sheriff Sam is proud of his son Jeff who has realized he doesn't need Mutt as a crutch any more. But no tears for Mutt as he's adopted by one of the soldiers who has recovered from his Yucca Man attack. It's a happy ending for everyone. But is Yucca Man really dead?

Danny has been shuttled from foster home to foster home all of his life and doesn't feel he fits in anywhere, so he's not very open to giving his new foster home a chance.  All the kids at his new home work in his foster dad's orange grove, but Danny wants something of his own so he gets a job at a dog racing track cleaning up after the dogs.  There Danny befriends a dog that hasn't won any races and acts about as left out as Danny feels.  Upon hearing the dog's owner talk of putting the dog down, Danny barters for the dog in lieu of his pay and takes the abused animal home.  After nursing "Foster" back to health, Danny trains the dog to heal and fetch which the smart little greyhound takes to easily. Finally, both Danny and Foster seem to have found the love they have both desperately needed. 

But when Danny's foster dad has a massive heart attack and the bills pile up, Danny decides that the best way he and Foster can help is if Foster runs in the derby.  Racing him out of town allows for Danny and Foster's co-sponsor Otis, to qualify for the derby and prove Foster has the speed and potential to win the derby.  And the little greyhound has no problem blowing away all the competition.

However, the dog's former owner and abuser, Curtis finds out about the promising greyhound and he sets out to keep the dog from racing by filing charges of theft against Danny and an injunction to keep the dog from racing until final ownership can be established.  Without a bill of sale and Curtis' goons testifying on his behalf, it doesn't look like Danny stands a chance.  And for once, Danny has to place his trust in his new foster family's ability to help him. 

A small town sheriff takes his family camping in an effort to get closer to his kids. Meanwhile, soldiers are missing from their posts at the local military base, their guns left laying in the dirt, and General Store, who has a few lose screws of his own, insists that they've deserted and wants their "bodies" laid before his feet. When his assistant reminds the General that his men might still be alive, he retorts, "Not my men, Corporal!"


 

Emotionally and physically exhausted, Kate Franklin doesn’t have time to rest before escaped convicts take her family hostage.  Soon, a game of wits emerges between Kate and the convict leader as they try to keep an unsteady peace between the convicts and the women.  They fall for each other, but Kate still straddles the fence between doing her police duty and giving up all she’s known to leave with him. 

Clayton's Riders

CLAYTON’S RIDERS
 is a rock-n-roll western in its enthusiasm and spirit. 
Six down-on-their-luck lawbreakers with real hearts-of-gold take an exciting ride into an Indiana Jones adventure that is straight from the book of
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Honest work that pays is hard to come by in the old west
of the 1880’s, so our heroes have to make due
with robbing an occasional stagecoach.  But their luck is changing for the better and for worse.  The Riders stumble across a dead miner and discover a map to his hidden gold mine.  Armed with the map, they ride off to search for what they hope is enough gold to build their dreams and end their criminal careers.
But a new lawman has come to the territory with his own idea
of justice: Hang ‘em first – tri’ ‘em later! 
His discovery of the Riders at the dead miner’s campsite fuels his case for raising a giant posse to hunt the Riders down, guilty or not. 
The map, however, doesn’t lead to a goldmine. 
It’s a puzzle that must be solved in order to recover
each successive piece of the real map, leading Clayton and his men on a wild out-of-the-frying-pan-into-the-fire adventure that traps them in a cavern with the territorial marshal, his posse, the
real killers and the gold!

Ask me what else I might have hiding away in scripts, books, movies, TV and more!
