Starman script
Starman (1984)
Synopsis: Answering a NASA message intended for aliens, a space being tries to contact mankind, but an American missile grounds his ship. Scrambling, the so-called Starman (Jeff Bridges) inhabits the body of a late Wisconsinite and kidnaps the dead man's widow, Jenny Hayden (Karen Allen). Determined to reunite with a vessel from his home planet at a predetermined site, Starman and Jenny travel to Arizona. Pursued by military officials trying to kill him, Starman forges a lasting bond with Jenny.

The officer strains to see through the fog.

OFFICER:

Benny, there's nothing there.

BENNY:

There is. They came out of the belly

of the ship and then went to the

first terrace and flew down into the

houses.

OFFICER:

Flew?! Oh, come on Benny...

The second officer is peering intently at something down

among the houses.

OFFICER:

You hear that, Mike? Now he's telling

us...

MIKE (SECOND OFFICER)

What's that?

Benny and the officer look to where Mike is pointing. What

appears to be the beam of a powerful headlight bobs among

the houses below them. Further into the track another beam

of light moves slightly from right to left but seems otherwise

stationary.

BENNY:

What did I tell you?

OFFICER:

Probably kids.

One of the lights rises over a house and settles on the other

side.

MIKE:

(not convinced)

Probably...

EXT. HOUSING TRACT - NIGHT

A light shines directly into our eyes. As it swings away

from us we realize that it was the searchlight on the police

car which is idling along the dirt road with its running

lights off. The fire on the hill gives the fog down here a

red tint.
