In both deals Allan was hired on as screenwriter.

 

Allan was a ‘Hollywood writer’ for over twenty years. He was one of the initial staff writers on Miami Vice; he was also on staff for Crime Story, Michael Mann’s follow up TV seriesHe went on to write the screenplay for Beer, a Robert Chartoff (Rocky, The Right Stuff, Raging Bull, etc, etc) production, from his original idea, a comedy about a beer advertising campaign that gets out of hand.

 

Allan made a good living in Hollywood right into the mid 1990s, then, for personal, aesthetic reasons, he decided to get back to living life, and to make a film completely on his own. Water Time; Surf Travel Diary of a MadMan can be viewed via his website, Banditobooks.com.

Before his career in writing, Hodder-Williams joined the army in 1944, and served in the Middle East and lived in Kenya and New York, later settling in the UK.
