Cocktail creator honoured on movie’s 20th birthday

Former journalist and bartender Heywood Gould will be guest of honour on Thursday (22Oct09) at a celebration of the movie at the Penn Station TGI Friday restaurant, where much of the picture was shot.

He’ll be accompanied by America’s top Tom Cruise look-a-likes and guests will be able to enjoy cocktail shaking and bottle spinning demonstrations.

As well as writing the role that helped Cruise become a Hollywood superstar, Gould also penned the screenplays for movies The Boys from Brazil and Rolling Thunder.
