“When I complain about writing I think I could be loading barley into a big truck.” William Kittredge
William Kittredge served as a writer (additional dialogue) on Heartland (1979) and as co-producer on A River Runs Through It (1992).
Here’s the way IMDB sums up one of Oregon’s most distinguished artists:
Has been called by literary critics “the modern western short story writer par excellence.” Has received many regional and national literary awards and has edited 23 anthologies of western literature.
He served for many years as head of the creative writing department at the University of Montana.
Graduated from Oregon State University in 1954 with a degree in general agriculture.
William Kittredge was born and raised in a part of Oregon you’ve never been to. Lake County, in the southeastern corner of the state, has about 7,895 residents. They all get along quite well, as that works out to about one person per square mile. Strange but true – Lake County also produced film writer Dennis Cozzalio, who can be found at Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule.
