A good friend and reader of the blog, Ross Anderson is writing the definite history of the making of Roger Rabbit. Ross just sent me the following note about his in-depth research:
[One weakness is the information related to the Amblin aspect of the story, especially the development phase in the transition from the prior Disney development to the full-on Zemeckis treatment. Any call-out for people who might have a contribution to that, or any other aspect of the evolution of the Roger Rabbit story, would be very appreciated.]

While looking for a photo to illustrate this post, I stumbled upon the following test for the early version of Roger Rabbit directed by Darrell Van Citters. Enjoy!
