Being Hal Ashby

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines Hal Ashby's directorial job for the film The Slugger's Wife. This film was produced by Ray Stark, written by Neil Simon and starred Michael O'Keefe, Rebecca De Mornay and Randy Quaid. The film received so much criticism that negatively affected its box-office performance. Though it was a high-profile, mega-budget movie made by highly respected individuals, it was a huge flop, taking only $1.8 million in receipts, less than 10 percent of what it had cost.
