Re: All is Lost

Why go to sea without HF, Sat, etc? ...it was in the moviescript. Hard to build the drama when the star has all the gizmos to avoid disaster. The setup can work if the sailor (Redford) is cast as a old-school stubborn bonehead that would do just such a thing. If not I'll try to think he is. I remember a old pilot that wouldn't put a radio in his Piper Cub... said "you find me a radio that'll provide lift and I'll install it". Just sayin' stubborn old sailors (et. al.) are out there.
