Default Movie Plot Based on Chess

CHESS MOVIES I'D PAY TO SEE

"Another Fine Mess" Laurel and Hardy as two scholastic TD's.

"Tin Cup Finger" Sean Connery stars as a fund raiser for chess.

"In His Own Defense" Stan Booz plays the role of the young Petrosian, mainly
because he looks like Petrosian. Realism is enhanced by adding two Fuller
brushes simulating Petrosian's eyebrows.

"Adventures of the Check-O-Slobs" Follow four New Jersey chess schlubs as they
try to get sex from the hotel staff during the USATE.

"Last Tango In New Windsor" Buddy Ebsen plays the role of Bill Goichberg
loading six U-Haul trucks.

I have often tried to create a screenplay or a movie plot based on
chess. Sometimes I think of fragments but never a full plot. Perhaps
some others can contribute some ideas.

How about a brash American, and his female second meeting the Russian and
his cohorts in Merano for the world championship match. The American
alienates his second who takes up with the Russian player who happens to be
married. Switch to Bangkok for the second half of the match, the Russian has
defected, the American has quit the match and roams the streets of Bangkok
as an observer. A new Soviet challenger is playing the Russian. Eventually
the Russian chooses the game over his new lover. The end is unhappy or
bittersweet for all.

I think Sylvestor Stalone should be in it as the Rocky character. In
the movie, his brain has become mush from all those hits to the head.


He can play Sam Sloan.
