The film was originally known as CUTTER AND BONE, but retitled before release. There are some wonderful things in it. The scene that introduces Cutter was invented by the screenwriter, and contains some superb dialogue that is very much in the spirit of Thornburg's writing.

Here in the UK, the book is currently available from Serpent's Tail, with an introduction by George Pelecanos. The same publisher also has TO DIE IN CALIFORNIA and DREAMLAND. I believe that Thornburg's other 8 books are currently out of print, but can be tracked down on the internet (though GENTLEMAN BORN is very difficult to find).
