FADE IN:

INT. RECORDING STUDIO (LAST SESSION) - LA DEC 1970 - NIGHT

A dark silence hovers along the deserted, bunker-like studio.

MIKE stands and booms shadow a grand piano...

The ENGINEER waits in the booth, lit, alert man, bored,

fiddling...

ENGINEER:

Hey Jim, It's your birthday man,

whaddaya say we try this another

night...

Camera moving tentatively along the shadows, discovering the

sidelight on a Navy surplus pea jacket thrown on a chair;

moving to a candle's orange flutter on pages written with

verse... a hand breaking the seal of the bottle of Irish

Bushmill's whiskey.

VOICE:

(off)

Kill the lights a little more, will

ya John?

They might drop a bit more... Camera crawling past the FINGERS

weaving a new cigarette out of the Marlboro pack. An ashtray

full of butts... and an asthmatic horrid cough, filled with

phlegm... crawling up the slight paunch in the bright jersey

with #66 on it... stitched on the sleeve is the team mascot --

an American Indian in full headdress.

ENGINEER:

(off)

Hey man, how come the Doors aren't

in on this?

Camera revealing JAMES DOUGLAS MORRISON, -- 27, poet, buried

in the shadows, curls of cigarette smoke about his haunted

sensuous eyes, meditative lips scragged with beard and long

greasy hair, not a pretty sight, yet a man full and bold and

struggling for survival through his words... beneath the

Bushmill moon, he takes the tambourine and shakes it violently

in our face

JIM:

No music, No Doors. Let's roll... Is

everybody in?... Is Everybody in?...

Is everybody in? The ceremony is

about to begin...
