Doors Collectors MagazineInterviewee Dave Brock, lead singer for Wild Child, mentions Harry Nilsson and Terry Southern. Brock discusses how he had been considered
for the role of Jim Morrisson in the feature film biography. "I was on
full-time alert ... It always seemed as though 'The Movie' was within a
few months of being made from the time I started playing Jim on stage.
It almost happened several times but it was about five years before
it actually took off. During that time I met with many people interested
in making a movie. Probably the most interesting of these encounters
was with Larry and Althea Flynt, publishers of Hustler magazine.
They were dead serious about the project. Dennis Hopper was hired to
direct, Terry Southern to write the script and the late Harry Nilsson
to help with the music."
