2/14/1991 The lambs shut up
February 14, 1991. Happy Valentines' Day! With its typical quirky sense of humor Hollywood celebrated the cuddliest holiday with a touching story of the burgeoning relationship between a cadet FBI agent and a madman/serial killer/genius. The Silence of the Lambs is a hell of a movie. Oscars for Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Adapted Screenplay...
Oh, and since we are all about writing: Screenplay by Ted Tally, working pretty faithfully from the novel by Thomas Harris.
