it was great! The Movie is one of the best films ever made and it was very interesting listening to Bud's stories about the actors and making the film after the movie - and we got to have a little private chat with him and get his autograph. ...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Writers Guild Foundation

Originally founded in 1966 by James R Webb and a group of other prominent screenwriters, the Writers Guild Foundation has evolved considerably over the last decade. For years its library was its major program, and today its focus is on the two areas of historical preservation and education. Working closely with the Writers Guild of America, west, the Foundation provides a number of services and programs to both working writers and the public.

In recent years the Foundation has developed a broad range of initiatives designed to:

- preserve the history of screenwriting as an artform

-promote writing for film and television as literature in its own right

- collect and preserve the best and most representative film and television writing from each year for present and future generations to study

-provide primary and continuing educational opportunities for professional writers and students

-and raise public consciousness about what writers do and the importance of good writing in the collaborative arts of film and television.
