According to "All His Jazz, The Life and Death of Bob Fosse," by Martin Gottfried (1990; Da Capo Press, 1998), David Begelman of CMA suggested "Burnt Offerings" to Fosse as a project after he completed Sweet Charity
(1969), but before it was released. The author of "Burnt Offerings," Robert Marasco, had recently written a successful Broadway thriller, Child's Play." Fosse worked on a script and "spent three months preparing (it), working out a budget and scouting locations with designer Tony Walton
, but the project ultimately fizzled." It was to be produced by Lawrence Turman
, who had produced The Graduate
(1967), but Fosse's friend, director Stanley Donen
, thought it was a bad idea. "Don't do it!" he pleaded. "It's no damned good. Why are you doing it?" See more
