Make me proud

Below is further proof of Quentin Tarantino‘s admirably enthusiastic attitude when replying to fan mail, in the form of a brief but energetic handwritten note to a 14-year-old aspiring filmmaker named Richard in 1998 (for another perfect example, see this letter from 1996). This particular response was prompted by a letter from the young fan in which he asked a technical question relating to screenwriting: Whether or not Tarantino wrote “CONTINUED” at the top/bottom of each page of script.
