Cover me babe pt 1

Hotshot film student Tony Hall (Robert Forster) wins a prize for his short film and sets out to break into Hollywood. When financing for his documentary does not come through, Hall hits the streets alone to film, searching out moments of genuine humanity and truth. However, Halls definition of truth is slippery, and he sometimes manufactures incidents in front of the camera to obtain results. Eventually, his personal life starts to suffer, as well as his burgeoning professional career.

Cover Me Babe is a 1970 drama film about a young filmmaker who will do anything to get a studio contract. The film was directed by Noel Black, and stars Robert Forster and Sondra Locke. The title song was written by Fred Karlin and Randy Newman, and performed by BREAD. A second song by Bread (written by Karlin and band members James Griffin and Robb Royer, titled "So You Say") also appeared on the soundtrack.

Student filmmaker lets nothing stand in the way of his getting a studio contract.


Tony Hall is a film-school student who does not care to make conventional films. His first avant-garde effort features Melisse, who soon becomes Tonys lover and moves in with him.

Seeking a grant, Tony is steered to Paul, whos a Hollywood agent, but he continues to reject the notion of making movies that conform to the norm. Tony shoots realistic footage of a couple making love in a car, a derelict, a prostitute, even an argument between Melisse and a young student, Jerry, that nearly turns violent. He alienates all eventually, and is alone in the end.
