Terry Southern, American Author

Terry Southern
(1924 - 1995)

Terry Southern was born May 1, 1924 in Alvarado, Texas and was an integral part of the post-Beat literary scene of the 60's. His screenplays Dr. Strangelove and Easy Rider defined the paranoia of the 1960's. Terry Southern was ironic before the whole world turned ironic, antiestablishment in a time when the Establishment still existed, irreverent when people were still reverent. Reviewers called his satirical novels Candy and The Magic Christian "savage" before it became routine for comedy to be savage. His anarchic, obscene literary comedy made him so famous that the Beatles included him in the background of their Sgt. Pepper album jacket cover. Terry Southern is wearing his signature dark sun glasses behind John Lennon. Terry Southern wrote both the source material and the screenplay for one of Ringo Starr's first solo film efforts, The Magic Christian.

Terry Southern began rewriting Edgar Allan Poe stories "because they didn't go far enough" at the age of twelve. He served in the Army during World War II as a Lieutenant and wrote short stories while studying at the Sorbonne in France. An early work, "The Accident", was published in the premier issue of The Paris Review, the first short story to appear in that magazine. He admired and befriended British novelist Henry Greene, who convinced Andre Deutch to publish his first novel, Flash and Filigree (1958). Residing with his first wife Carol in Geneva, he conjured the surrealistic exploits for trillionaire trickster "Grand Guy Guy Grand" in The Magic Christian (1959) while at the same time writing Candy (1960) for Maurice Girodias' Olympia Press. He and Gregory Corso convinced Girodias to print William S. Burrough's Naked Lunch. Southern published numerous short stories in England, France and America which were later compiled in Red Dirt Marijuana and Other Tastes (1967), and co-edited Writers in Revolt with Alex Trocci and Richard Seaver in 1962.

After settling in an old farmhouse in East Canaan, Connecticut, Stanley Kubrick asked Southern to apply his black humor to a story about the world ending in nuclear holocaust. Columbia Pictures insisted all along that there was nothing funny about the end of the world, but Terry Southern felt otherwise. The result was the 1964 hit movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Kubrick was miffed when Southern's script attracted praise from reviewers. The film came out when Candy was a bestseller and Southern's reputation briefly eclipsed Kubrick's. From England, Kubrick began announcing that he was the true author of the film, marginalizing Southern's role. A typical Terry Southern character in the movie is Colonel "Bat" Guano (Keenan Wynn) who thinks "pervert" is pronounced "prevert" and denounces an English RAF officer played by Peter Sellers. "I think you're some kind of deviated prevert." says Guano. For some months afterward, "prevert" became part of the English language. In the film, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (George C. Scott) arguing for a preemptive nuclear strike against Russia, insists that American losses won't be all that bad: "I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than 10 to 20 million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks." When humanity is about to be destroyed, the Scott character sulks: "I don't think it's quite fair to condemn a whole program because of a single slip-up."

A rewarding period in Hollywood followed, writing dialog for The Loved One (1965), The Collector, Cincinnati Kid (1966), Casino Royale and Barbarella (1967). Terry helped launch the independent film movement by co-authoring Easy Rider (1968), and co-producing The End Of The Road (1969).

The Loved One, from the Evelyn Waugh novel, had an unlikely cast that included Milton Berle, John Gielgud and Liberace. On the set, Southern met his future wife, Canadian Gail Gerber. She had danced with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens in Montreal and then worked at the CBC in Toronto. Gerber went to Los Angeles and picked up a small part in The Loved One.

Southern wrote Easy Rider, a gigantic hit, but was persuaded to share script credit with Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper. All three were nominated for an Academy Award. Jack Nicholson's role as a small-town Southern lawyer launched his career. Dennis Hopper wanted the main characters to ride into the sunset, but Southern insisted that "there were no happy endings". Disputes raged for years afterward about the film between Southern and the actors/producers. He argued that according to the Screenwriters Guild guidelines, he should have been awarded sole credit for the screenplay. Southern always felt that "vicious greed" kept him from getting the fees and credit due him for Easy Rider.

In 1968 Southern participated in the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention riots against the Vietnam War along with Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs and Jean Genet. A cover shot of Esquire shows the writers posed with a wounded protester. The photo was taken in New York because they were all arrested setting the shot in Chicago.

After the publication surrounding Blue Movie (1970), he turned to screenwriting full-time, working on speculative original scripts, adaptations, and assignments throughout the 70s and 80s. During this difficult period, Southern's reputation slowly ebbed and the IRS repeatedly attempted to reclaim over $150,000 in unpaid taxes from the mid-sixties. He wrote The Telephone (1986) with singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. His last novel, Texas Summer, was released by Richard Seaver in 1992.

In 1981 and 1982, Southern was a writer for "Saturday Night Live" while the show was going through one of its 'spells'. From this time until his death, Terry Southern taught film once a week at Columbia University and NYU. In his last years, he was usually short of cash and bothered by the IRS. Terry Southern was the sort of writer who could somehow incur a huge tax bill without making much money. Nile Southern, the writer's son, has been trying to manage the estate's debts and sort out the copyright issues that his father handled so carelessly.

Terry Southern's mission in life was to "attack smugness". He used anarchic humor to strike at sexual repression, militarism and political corruption. Although his later works did not attract widespread attention, Southern changed American taste. But in doing so, he also made himself irrelevant. By the time he died in 1995, Terry Southern had been imitated so often that it is hard to remember that his work inspired controversy.

Terry Southern's manuscripts, letters and other private papers along with his eyeglasses, typewriter and whiskey flask are now in the New York Public Library's Berg Collection.

The Magic Christian -Terry Southern - - The Magic Christian
One of the funniest, cruelest, and most savagely revealing books about American life ever written, The Magic Christian has been called Terry Southern's masterpiece. Guy Grand is an eccentric billionaire — the last of the big spenders — determined to create disorder in the material world and willing to spare no expense to do it. Leading a life full of practical jokes and madcap schemes, his ultimate goal is to prove his theory that there is nothing so degrading or so distasteful that someone won't do it for money. In Guy Grand's world, everyone has a price, and he is all too willing to pay it. A satire of America's obsession with bigness, toughness, money, TV, guns, and sex, The Magic Christian is a hilarious and wickedly original novel from a true comic genius.

Now Dig This: The Unspeakable Writings of Terry Southern, 1950-1995 -Terry Southern - - Used Book in Good Condition
Acclaimed novelist, Beat godfather, prolific screenwriter, and one of the founders of New Journalism, as well as the only guy to wear shades on the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's cover, Terry Southern was an audacious original. Now Dig This is a journey through Terry Southern's America, from the buttoned-down '50s through the sexual revolution, rock 'n' roll, and independent cinema (which he helped inaugurate by cowriting and producing Easy Rider), up to his death in 1995. It spans Southern's stellar career, from early short stories and a Paris Review interview with Henry Green, to his legendary Esquire piece covering the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention with Jean Genet and William Burroughs and his equally infamous account of life neck-high in girls and cocaine aboard The Rolling Stones' tour jet, to his memories of twentieth-century legends like Abbie Hoffman, Kurt Vonnegut, and Stanley Kubrick, with whom he wrote Dr. Strangelove. "A voice electric with street rhythm and royal with offhand intellection ... stuffed with strange and silken scraps." -- Troy Patterson, Entertainment Weekly "The subterranean Texan's finest moments are exquisite reads ... like a hot poker in the eye of conventional narrative." -- A. D. Amorosi, Philadelphia City Paper "The range of writing ... [was] as lethal as Mailer claimed and still awaiting the attention it deserves." -- Charles Taylor, Newsday "... reveals a writer defined by his generosity, by the pursuit of fun and by an insatiable ... literary appetite...." -- Claire Dederer, The New York Times Book Review

Trippin' with Terry Southern: What I Think I Remember -ARRAY(0x3812d20) - Winner, 2010 Independent Publisher Book Award Silver Medal!

This award-winning memoir about "the hippest guy on the planet" recollects novelist/screenwriter Terry Southern's highs and lows, his association with the Beat Generation, and his movie cult classics Dr. Strangelove and Easy Rider.

In 1964, Terry Southern met actress Gail Gerber on the set of The Loved One. He was enjoying his success from co-writing the risque novel Candy, a satire of Candide, and the movie Dr. Strangelove; she had just co-starred with Elvis Presley in Girl Happy. Though they were both married, there was an instant connection and they remained a couple until his death 30 years later.

In her memoir, Gail recalls what life was like with "the hippest guy on the planet." It documents their life together and contains numerous photographs of Terry and Gail with friends both famous and notorious. The wickedly gifted satirist, who had a stint writing for Saturday Night Live, kept company with the likes of Lenny Bruce, Dennis Hopper, Ringo Starr, William Burroughs, George Segal, Harry Nilsson, George Plimpton, David Amram and Rip Torn. It also reveals what went on behind the scenes of Gail's movies (including The Girls on the Beach and Village of the Giants), and Terry's movies (including The Cincinnati Kid, Casino Royale, Barbarella, The Magic Christian, End of the Road, and Easy Rider).

Blue Movie -Terry Southern -

A hilarious, wildly erotic, and biting satire of Hollywood, Blue Movie tells the story of King B., an Oscar-winning director who's determined to shoot the dirtiest and most expensive X-rated movie ever made; Sid Krassman, a producer who's made a fortune catering to the tastes of the American public, and Angela Sterling, a misunderstood sex symbol who'd give anything (and everything) for a chance to do something "serious." The set is fraught with monstrous egos and enormous libidos—the kind of situation that could only come from the imagination of the irrepressible Terry Southern.

Yours in Haste and Adoration: Selected Letters of Terry Southern -Terry Southern - Terry Southern was one of the most outrageous and penetrating satirists of the twentieth century, judged by Gore Vidal to be "the most profoundly witty writer" of their generation. As a novelist (Candy, The Magic Christian, Blue Movie), screenwriter (Dr. Strangelove, Easy Rider, Barbarella), pioneer of the "New Journalism" at Esquire, and writer for Saturday Night Live, Southern had an incomparable gift for exposing the grotesqueries of the American Way of Life while living it to the full. Southern's list of correspondents reads like a cultural Who's Who of the last half-century. In this collection we find letters to fellow writers including Nelson Algren, William S. Burroughs, George Plimpton, Alex Trocchi, Allen Ginsberg, Henry Green, Gregory Corso, playwright Jack Gelber, and Mason Hoffenberg (co-author of Candy). His letters extend to Hollywood luminaries such as Stanley Kubrick, Dennis Hopper, and George Segal. Southern also corresponded through the years with legendary performers and artists of the day, among them Lenny Bruce, Harry Nilsson, Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Larry Rivers, and gallery scene-maker/impresario Robert Fraser. Even more idiosyncratic and outrageous when writing to his friends than he was for an audience, Southern dashed off a plethora of hilarious, shocking, frequently offensive, and unprintable missives to his many friends and colleagues. As this brilliant collection reveals, Southern was one of the great letter writers of the twentieth century.
