The Script

The cover was phony but the script was real. Anywhere in the script where we saw the name Lord of Light, we changed it to say Argo. That weekend when we set up Studio Six, the last thing I did was design the cover. I did it all on a yellow-lined pad in the kitchen." - Tony Mendez

 


The script for the fake CIA movie Argo was actually from an unmade adaptation of Roger Zelazny's sci-fi novel Lord of Light.
