(Caper/Comedy, a screenplay)
A "beat generation" poet finds himself involved in noir criminal adventures in 1959.


In 1959 a beatnik poet returns to San Francisco seeking Truth but is thrust (by Destiny) into a film noir gangster adventure, and given the name Rocky Starbuck (by Destiny again). In a beard and leather jacket, Rocky looks tough and talks tough but we can hear his inner poetic monologues. Of course he meets three women of the genre: the rich nymphomaniac society dame, the hot nymphomaniac stripper, and the steamy nymphomaniac Spanish beauty. He also solves the crimes and eliminates the ruthless gangster boss. Bullets, babes, bongos, drugs, danger, diamonds, poetry, inner monologues, literary pretension, action, comedy.
