Peter Fonda Wrote Easy Rider in a Seedy Toronto Motel and You Should Too
Peter Fonda recently said that he wrote the script for Easy Rider without the aid of drugs between 1:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. in a low-rent Toronto motel. Since most of the film industry is currently in this very city, it seems like the perfect time to see if lightning will strike twice. Instead of sleeping tonight, I challenge all festival-goers to take a break from the blog updates and crowded screenings, hole up in the cheapest motel you can find and write your own script, Fonda-style. Imagine how much more you'd have to show for your trip! First person to change the direction of cinema for the next decade wins. The prize? Your entire personal life exposed by Peter Biskind.
