Jerry B. Lincecum (English Professor, specialist of Texas and Southwestern literature, Folklorist) interviews writer Horton Foote. Foote, a native of Wharton, TX, discusses his writing processes from idea to finished product, the writers who influenced him, and how experience informs his writing. He specifically references the experiences of writing Tender Mercies and the screenplay for Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. He also comments on trends and evolution in the Hollywood studio system, and the differences between writing for his own projects versus being a writer for hire.
