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.

INT. POLICE CAR - NIGHT

The police officers are beginning to feel anxious. Benny's

nervous fidgeting in the back seat doesn't help them any.

BENNY:

Don't you think you should call a

backup?

OFFICER:

No, we can handle this.

EXT. HOUSING TRACT - NIGHT

The police car passes a road perpendicular to the one it is

on. A couple of houses down that road a faint glow spills

over the sides of an industrial dumpster. As we watch we

hear an eerie high pitched whistle, a shaft of light slowly

rises out of the metal box and seems to fly off between the

houses.

INT. FINISHED HOUSE - NIGHT

As a humanoid silhouette passes in front of the picture

window, a shaft of light floats by in the fog outside. The

silhouette continues around to look at the kitchen. It raises

a hand to eye level. There is a sharp "SNAP" and a hard-edged

cone of light shoots out of the darkness to capture the inside

of the kitchen and pulls back a three-dimensional image of

stove, sink, cupboards, electrical fixtures and walls to the

silhouette.
