Winning Screenplay Reading: Madness Jackson, by C.S. Talbott

Black and White Film Festival

Cut from his 1938 Oregon college team, pint-sized, teary-eyed basketball player takes the coach’s advice and sets a goal of proving him wrong. He returns to his parents’ California home and works exhaustively on getting stronger. He then painstakingly tries to secure the coach’s blessing by attempting a 600-mile bicycle journey and a 2,000-mile hitchhiking adventure encountering wildlife, thieves and a Miss America Pageant contestant.
