Written by Craig Hamann and Quentin Tarantino
Directed by Craig Hamann and Quentin Tarantino
Before Tarantino directed his first movie (Reservoir Dogs), he co-directed ANOTHER first movie, My Best Friend’s Birthday.
Tarantino later considered it amateurish, so he claimed to be a first time director when putting together the production for “Reservoir Dogs.” Although “Birthday” is really no more embarrassing than most student films, QT thought if investors saw it, they’d hire someone else to direct.
About half the film was lost in a lab mishap, but 36 minutes of it survive on the internet today.
