RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
One of my favorite movies is "Smoke Signals", which the credits link to Mr Alexie's book "The Lone & Tonto Fistfight in Heaven". Now, I've read the book, and it's amazing, but the link between the two seems VERY loose.
Loving both stories & always curious about the "story behind stories", these questions occurred to to me: How much involvement did Mr Alexie have in the development of the screenplay for "Smoke Signals"? And, if the answer to the first question is anything less that "he wrote the whole thing", how does he feel about what they did with his story/characters in that movie?
