Skateworld, U.S.A.

Rewrite by Pat McCormick

July 9, 1979

As I understand it, the back story on this rewrite was that the producers want Dom DeLuise for the Harvey Ross character, but Dom refused even to read the screenplay until Pat had rewritten that part just for him. Once presented with Pat’s rewrite, Dom summarily informed the producers that his schedule was too full for him to consider taking the part. The Harvey Ross character was then played by Flip Wilson.
