Biography: James Bridges was an American screenwriter and film director. Bridges was born in Paris, Arkansas. He got his start as a writer for Alfred Hitchcock Presents after catching the attention of Norman Lloyd, a producer for the series. One of his episodes, An Unlocked Window, earned him a 1966 Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best Episode in a TV Series. Bridges went on to write and direct a number of notable films, including The Baby Maker, The Paper Chase, September 30, 1955, The China Syndrome, Urban Cowboy, Perfect, and Bright Lights, Big City. Bridges was a mentor to actress Debra Winger. From 1958 to 1993, his life partner was actor Jack Larson, best known for his portrayal of Jimmy Olsen in the TV series Adventures of Superman. Bridges died in Los Angeles, California of cancer. The James Bridges Theater at University of California, Los Angeles was named in his honor in November 1999. Bridges was a faculty member there early in his career. LESS
The third and final part of my review of Mike's Murder(1984) starring Debra Winger, Mark Keyloun, Darrell Larson, Brooke Alderson, Paul Winfield, Robert Crosson, Dan Shor, and William Ostrander. Directed by James Bridges. Trivia While the film's test screening tested really poorly, Joe Jackson's score was ultimately replaced by John Barry before it's new release date in 1984. However in a very strange occurrence, Joe Jackson's rejected score and the song's he wrote and were left in the final film, was released by A&M Records around 1983. This would mark a very rare occurrence in that film that was delayed without a release date would have a soundtrack released beforehand let alone a rejected score.
