RARA-AVIS: They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

I started reading this today, and with the weather at 35 and the humidex making it feel like 45, I feel like I've been in a dance marathon myself. Does anyone else have the movie tie-in edition from the '70s? Not only does it have the book, it also has the script with an introduction by Sidney Pollack. Nice combo.

I'll send out another message when I've finished it, but I will say now that it really starts off really well, moving along quickly and letting you know there's no way out. I was reminded of the Woolrich novel that starts, "One Hundred Eighty-Seven Days Before the Execution."

I think I have the movie on tape here, and I look forward to watching it when I'm done. Gig Young was amazing as the MC.
