THREE BRUINS WIN GOLDWYN AWARDS
Three UCLA students have won the 1986 Samuel Goldwyn Writing Awards.
Allison Anders, the first-place winner, received $5,000 for “Lost Highway,” a drama about a record collector and a washed-out rockabilly singer searching for his daughter. Jennifer Collopy received $2,500 for her fantasy “Leprechaun,” about a 20th-Century woman who is sent back to 5th-Century Ireland. Third-place winner Marian Treger won $1,000 for her psycho-thriller “The Big Gulp” about a woman working in a 7-Eleven.
The Goldwyn writing competition, established in 1955, is open to students on all UC campuses. This year’s judges were actor and producer Griffin Dunne, producers Amy Robinson and Martin Manulis.
