Shepard, Sam

Playwright commissioned by Dylan to write a screenplay for a film to be shot on the 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue. Though the script idea was later dropped, Shepard contributed his ideas and acting to the film Renaldo and Clara and documented the tour in his Rolling Thunder Logbook. He subsequently collaborated with Dylan on the 1984 song 'New Danville Girl' and on a June 1987 feature for Esquire magazine.
