A private detective. A femme fatale. A family secret. Sex & Crime & Politics.
The plot is based on real events of the California Water Wars and the bursting of the St Francis Dam in the beginning of the 20th century. The Californian hydraulic engineer William Mulholland served as role model for the character of Hollis Mulwray. Producer Robert Evans, screenwriter Robert Towne and director Roman Polanski set the family drama in an atmosphere of distrust and shady morals – characteristic for film noir. The screenplay won an Oscar in 1975 as well as numerous other awards. The best film noir of all time.

For 30 years working as a script analyst/consultant/writer under pseudonym or unnamed. Motto: “The script is the film!”
