Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates would be the hottest film to hit the screen in decades. We look forward to its production--with great gusto. We're keeping our fingers crossed fot this one!

Emily, Yes, Gus Van Sant directed an ill-fated adaptation of "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" back in 1993. There were rumors at the time that up to a full hour was cut from the film's theatrical release. Though from the footage that was left in I hardly doubt it would have improved the final product. An ambitious, yet flawed adaptation indeed.
