Jim Henson's Tale of Sand as realized by Ramon K. Perez

I have no idea why this lost screenplay by Jim Henson and Jerry Juhl was never actualize as a movie. Scratch that. Of course I do. The movie is about a man named Mac who for no expressible reason is send forth into the desert to complete a race of sorts wherein he is hunted and has to survive the natural elements and the very unnatural elements that a surreal desert world throws against him. Perhaps more is made clear in the screenplay itself but that is unlikely, as a beautiful blonde bride and a swarthy one eyed devil slash aristocrat (I guess that's really the same thing) throw obstacles in his way. Much of what occurs makes little sense, and a lot of what occurs may not play well to modern sensibility, all adding to an understanding of why this movie could never– but really should, as in right now– be made. I enjoyed it, and would love to see it on the big screen, but realistically this may be as close as I will get.
