Millard Kaufman, who passed away on March 14, 2009, at the age of 92, accomplished something maybe even more significant than his two Academy Awards nominations. And that is the fact that he managed to sustain a writing career for seven decades.
Documentary Filmmaker Edmond Stevens presents a segement of his feature length documentary, "Spec", about the culture and commerce of spec screenplay writing. Millard was generous enough to to contribute an interview for this movie and here are a few excerpts and his take on "a life well-written." A special thank you goes out to his wife of 66 years, Lorraine Kaufman.
