Only if I can transition this to a film. It would be both the greatest train oriented movie ever filmed, AND the greatest one-shoe movie ever as well! Perchance to dream as someone who wrote things better than I ever could once said.

No. Just some close should-haves. There was the scene where Michael Douglas chops off her heels, but it was the scene where her chopped-high-heeled foot breaks through the rotted wood of the suspension bridge they were crossing. It looked as if her shoe was going to fly off into space, thus making the scene in the movie poster come to life, but the shoe magically stays put. She never loses one. Just one of many examples of a "shoe-teaser" type movie where the female character is in a situation where her shoe should have been lost but never do. Don't know if this is the actress' request not to go one-shoed or not, but it is frustrating. That would NOT be the case if my story ever makes it all the way to film. There would be a stipulation in the screenplay rights that Laura will be in one shoe throughout the entire film except for the flashback of how she loses her shoe during her escape from the bad guys, no ifs, ands, or buts!

Remember, it's just a movie promo poster. No guarantee there will be a shoe loss in the film. Remember the poster for Romancing the Stone? There never was a shoe loss scene in the entire movie, although there were a couple of close calls. Now if my novel ever makes the jump to a film, it's guaranteed to have shoe loss as the loss of the main female character's shoe is the key clue in the whole story.

Check out this channel. https://youtu.be/t33JCii3h40 A couple of good ones here. Best one is Number 08, although it has no sound.

Interesting concept. Wish I could do this for my novel, but the film version would have a much bigger budget than this owing to its need to use real trains and the amount of CGI that would be needed to make the film.

It's a shame she was wearing pants. I prefer my one shoed damsels in distress in skirts or at least a dress.

Reworking My Novel 05-31-2017 22:47 Forum: Stories/Written Works


Hi guys. I guess you already know I've been reworking my novel, The Railroad Man, for some time now, trying to put out a final "Writer's Cut" edition. Wonder what you think of this very brief passage from my story. It's where Laura, my one-shoed, hat-loving heroine, has defiantly walked into the railroad's roundhouse despite Mike warning her not to. It's kind of a neat little scene:

She walked deeper into the roundhouse now, unhurried, looking around at the structure with her hands clasped behind her. Her bare left foot felt warm and comfortable, fully shielded from the harsh, filthy concrete floor by the bandage and thick cardboard flap Mike had given her. She stepped tiptoed with it as she walked, it’s near-silent footfall alternating with the sharp click the heel her lone shoe made, tapping out an irregularly-spaced cadence that echoed through the empty quietness—“ka-lick…ka-lick…ka-lick….” In a strange way, she was starting to like it, feeling at once alluring and vulnerable, yet strong and defiant.


Your thoughts?

Gabriel's Fire 05-06-2017 22:23 Forum: Other Content


Is there anyone out there who has or can give me a lead on where I can find an episode of an Old Show called Gabriel's Fire? There is an episode called Windows that has a major (And lengthy) one shoe sequence described as both, "The main female character having a night of misadventure while dressed as a hooker," and, "The main female character escapes from nearly being abducted." This obviously is where the shoe loss occurs. The episode was the tenth episode of the first and only season for the show. I've tried to find it on the web to no avail. Just wondering if there are other avenues you guys may have available that might bear some fruit. Thanks.

Here's an old episode of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer from 1984.
One of my all time favorites. Enjoy.

The Once Upon A Time group of drawings was real interesting, but like I've said before, I much prefer if the woman were dressed in a nice skirt suit with a pair of heels as if on her way to work or a date or interview and losing her pump as she got out of the train (I'm also partial to hats as many here know, but having her wear one too may be asking too much!) Having her in pants/jeans and missing a sneaker kind of ruins it for me. Nice artwork, but sorry.

Charlize Theron is one of the sexiest, most beautiful women alive. But she's wearing pants in the scene in question, which ruins it for me. I prefer a woman in a skirt losing her shoe as in my novel. (www.therailroadman.com)

Who is this C4? They claim some of the clips are parts of longer videos. But there's no additional info on the company beyond what's listed on YouTube.

A Little Fun With The Old Paint Program 08-05-2016 05:26 Forum: Art/Other Media


Not up on the new tech stuff. But here's a little thing done with paint. I put the shoe from my novel on the shoed foot too. That was a challenge but I think it came out okay.

If only someone would think about picking my novel up and converting it into a film. You'd have a great one-shoe piece there with Laura. And you'd have a great, exciting story to go with it too.

Oldie but a goodie, poor Jade lost her shoe again while on a mission. How will she get out of this one-shoed predicament?

And here's another film that just should never have been made. A real bomb. And I still can't get my novel up past a few hundred sales. Any hope of ever seeing The Railroad Man made into a film and seeing Laura Paris in all her one-shoed glory is fading fast.
