93-year-old competes in 13 events in Huntsman World Senior Games October 3-5 in St. George, Utah and is producing "Hopper's Nighthawks" movie.

Julian Myers, 93-year-old Hollywood publicist. is producing "Hopper's Nighthawks: 90 Minutes and Nine Lives" and competing in thirteen events in the Huntsman World Senior Meet in St, George, Utah, Oct. 3-5. Seven running thru 3,000 meters, and six field, including shot put,. He won eleven medals there last year.

"My sixth year in this meet," says Julian,"but first time I'll get a movie made after 73 years of trying." He graduated from USC Cinema in 1939, has worked in films since,has run 25 marathons, so far. He is Hollywood's most experienced movie publicist, Oscar Academy member since 1956.

Julian and his attorney wife founded the international holiday AmigoDay: "Just greet anyone anywhere, your way, any month's first Sunday." They usually salute the 12-day Huntsman competition in the name of AmigoDay. "But this year Uncle Sam just issued one billion copies of a new 44-cent EDWARD HOOPER 'forever' postage stamp so we are proclaiming our Hopper movie instead. 'Nighthawks' is a favorite painting internationally."

Julian, alumnus of Columbia Pictures' story department, wrote "Hopper's Nighthawks: 90 Minutes and Nine Lives" with his partner, Master in Fine Arts Screenwriting Arlene Clendenin. "It dramatizes the contlict between Hopper and his artist wife Josephine, just when the now world-famous painting is revealed.and as America is plunged into World War II. A revolutionary period. All sorts of relationships everywhere are changing, and some explode in our film."

"Hopper's Nighthawks" will be filmed in six days, on a budget of $40,000. Julian and Ms. Clendenin are seeking one financier to co-produce with them. Their office is in Marina del Rey, near Los Angeles, but their drama can be shot anywhere, on two sets, with no special effects.

Julian says, "Last year I won eleven medals in the meet, but now that I'm younger maybe I'll win more this time, to display at the premiere of 'Hopper's Nighthawks."
