Writer Statement

This is a very personal story to me. After being named a semi-finalist in 2012 in the Charleston International Film Festival, I was contacted by the great-granddaughter of Marshal Ben Thompson, Mrs. Anne Beck, who asked to read my screenplay. Later I was invited to her home where I was given the opportunity to hold Ben Thompson's revolver, his whistle and many other items personally owned by Marshal Thompson.

Mrs. Beck backed my project/screenplay telling me that many people had approached her about telling Ben's story, but they all painted him in a dark light. My story did not. And so, she gave Gentlemen Gunfighter her blessing. Mrs. Anne Beck passed away in 2020. My only wish was that she was alive to watch it on the big screen.
