Cassidy's Girl -- The Movie

I've been trading emails with writer/producer/director Edward Holub, who's working on a film version of David Goodis's novel CASSIDY'S GIRL. I've read only a few of Goodis's novels, but CASSIDY'S GIRL is my favorite so far, and I think it'll make an excellent film. Ed's put up a website about the movie, which you can find here. If you're a David Goodis fan, you need to check it out.

Ed's first feature film,
NIGHT RUNS RED, sounds pretty intriguing, too. I'm going to have to see if I can hunt up a copy of it to watch.

Thanks for the write up, James. This is Edward Holub, and yes, we are working on getting this story up on the big screen. You can check out more of my work on

Very cool. One of my favourite Goodises too. One of his least sympathetic protagonists, yet one who's compeletely engaging. -- Al

My dad used to drive the same kind of Lada that is seen in the videos section, in the Eastern European short film Holub has made, UNKNOWN MAN.
