From Costner’s comment, “It’s easy to beat Hollywood,” it seems that Blake lacks a filter and is criticizing the face of people in the industry and its entertainment productions (which are sometimes inferior to the industry’s most popular). star). In a town built on relationships, a more career-minded social climber might be inclined to bite their tongue. Either way, while Blake rammed Costner, he went on to write “Dances with Wolves” and asked Costner to read it. This went on for months until Costner finally got fed up with it and decided to kick him out. Fortunately, the story had a happy ending for both of them, Costner explained:
“Finally he called me and he was in Arizona working in a Chinese restaurant washing dishes. I don’t know if you’ve worked in a Chinese restaurant washing dishes but there are plenty of them. He asked me for help again, I sent him sleeping bags, money, still trying to help him He said, ‘Have you read my script?’ I said no. He said, ‘PLEASE READ!’ So I did… and it was ‘Dances With Wolves.’ “
Michael Blake passed away in 2015, so we only hear one side of the story through Costner. But for any writer or creator who has ever faced rejection, the story of how a dishwasher with a famous friend finally managed to get that friend to read his script. illustrates the need for perseverance. While it’s probably not a good idea to ambush strangers or stick to the stereotype of a writer recklessly sliding their script under the door and delivering presentations in an elevator while working as a bartender in LA (or some other day job), but Blake tried to persevere and wasn’t easily discouraged or given up even when Kevin Costner himself turned him down.
