Lost Highway

Synopsis: From this inventory of imagery, Lynch fashions two separate but intersecting stories, one about a jazz musician (Bill Pullman), tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, who suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. The other is a young mechanic (Balthazar Getty) drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that the women in both are played by the same actress (Patricia Arquette).

CUT TO:

EXT. CITY STREET - NIGHT

A blue neon sign reads: LUNA LOUNGE.

CUT TO:

INT. LUNA LOUNGE - NIGHT

Fred is on the bandstand. He takes a solo on his saxophone.

Fred plays hot, hard, neo-bop. The BAND wails madly behind

him. The PATRONS explode onto the dance floor, making it a

wild scene. Fred is a lion now, roaring away on his tenor,

driving everyone nuts.

CUT TO:

INT. LUNA LOUNGE - LATER

After the band quits to take a break, FEMALE FANS come onto

Fred, but he moves away, refusing their attentions.

CUT TO:

INT. LUNA LOUNGE - BACKSTAGE - LATER

Fred dials a pay phone.

CUT TO:

INT. THE MADISON HOUSE - NIGHT

We move through the empty living room - empty bedroom, etc.

The ringing telephone goes unanswered.

CUT TO:

INT. LUNA LOUNGE - BACKSTAGE - NIGHT

CLOSE UP ON FRED'S FACE as he listens to the ringing. Sweat

is still rolling off his face. His eyes are blank.

CUT TO:

EXT. THE MADISON HOUSE - NIGHT

Fred's car pulls up in the driveway in front of his house.

Fred gets out, and goes into the house carrying his music

case.
