This is another true Bukowski Rarity.

It is a screenplay based on Bukowski’s first Novel, Post Office. Apparently, Taylor Hackford owned the film rights to Post Office at this time and wanted to do a follow up project after his documentary on Bukowski. (The rights for a film based on Post Office have changed hands multiple times over the years with no production ever started.)

The screenplay is signed by Bukowski on the first leaf.

The screenplay was written by Dan Carpenter. From the late 1960s to the early 1980s, Carpenter lived in and out of Hollywood writing screenplays for movies. He wrote a screenplay for the film Payday, which was filmed in 1972 and starred Rip Torn as a country singer.

Carpenter’s best friend was Richard Brautigan and it devastated him after Brautigan committed suicide in 1984. Years later, he suffered from a number of chronic illnesses before taking his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home in Mill Valley, California.

As seen on the cover, the film was to be produced by PLAYBOY PRODUCTIONS/NEW VISIONS INC.
