Unknown script including the characters Warbeck and Hilary.

Introductory correspondence with Peter Snell (British Lion, Pinewood Studios). This is followed by a letter to Nick Marston in which PK says he won’t go ahead with Peter Snell and his idea about the NCIS. Instead, he wishes to go through Greenlight Productions with Steven Evans, 18/1/94.

PK is commissioned by The Principal Film Company to write the treatment and first episode script of THE SCRUTINIES OF SIMON IFF.

The letter agreement confirms this is for a proposed television drama series based on the book THE SCRUTINIES OF SIMON IFF and SIMON IFF IN AMERICA by Aleister Cowley (“the Source Work”).

Letter from The Principal Film Company stating that the Network Centre had turned down THE SCRUTINIES OF SIMON IFF, 14/12/94.

A copy of AHAB is sent to Robert Bookman (Creative Artists Agency Inc.) by AP Watt. This is loosely based on Melville’s MOBY DICK, 12/12/94. Bookman replies “I think this is a very tough sale for us … Regardless I would be happy to send it to Jack Nicholson (and other actors who might respond like Gene Hackman) ...” (15/12/94).

The script is turned down by Fine Line Features and Hallmark Entertainment. Other correspondence is with John Lecher and Barry Mendal (California) and Goodman Phillips & Vineberg (Canada).
