James B. Harris

James B. Harris

Harris and Kubrick went their separate ways after "Lolita" with the producer venturing on to form James B. Harris Productions in 1963. As a producer-director, Harris's subsequent feature credits were relatively sparse: "The Bedford Incident" (1965), a Cold War naval drama starring Richard Widmark and Sidney Poitier; "Some Call It Loving" (1973), which marked his screenwriting debut, an uneven modern retelling of "Sleeping Beauty" set in southern California starring Zalman King, Tisa Farrow, and Richard Pryor; "Fast Walking" (1982), a prison drama starring James Woods; and "Cop" (1988), which he scripted, also starring Woods. He also produced the Don Siegel-directed Charles Bronson vehicle, "Telefon" (1977). Harris returned to directing and writing with "Boiling Point" (1993), a dark cop drama starring Wesley Snipes, Lolita Davidovich, and Dennis Hopper. This was a surprisingly old-fashioned crime story featuring tough-guy dialogue and morally ambiguous characters.
