PRLog - Jul. 27, 2011 - Veteran Character actor Greg Travis ( Watchmen, Halloween 2) has put together a unique short film project which asks the question, What was it like in 1973, when director Sam Peckinpah co-wrote and directed a film starring Warren Oates & Isela Vega entitled “Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia”. The film was made in and around Mexico City. One week into a difficult shoot, the head of United Artist threaten to pull the plug on the entire production. After a long hot day of shooting, Sam Peckinpah and his producer partners leaped into action in order to save their motion picture.
The film is entitled NOBODY LOSES ALL THE TIME. The title comes from a line in the film by Warren Oates when a man calls him a loser. After having read both the Oates and Peckinpah biographies, Travis wanted to write a play about the making of this unusual cult film “Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia”. That idea is what brought him to make this short film, which was shot in Beverly Hills over a long weekend in July. It’s a seventies period piece with authentic costumes and sets. Look alike actors and way cool script. The cast is Rocky Hart as SAM PECKINPAH, Greg Travis as WARREN OATES, Berenice Noriega as ISELA VEGA. The film will be finished by mid-summer and will be entered in various film festivals.
