STAND BY ME
RAYNOLD GIDEON & BRUCE A. EVANS
Based on the short story "THE BODY"
April 30, 1985
BLACK SCREEN. The title "THE BODY" DISSOLVES UP IN WHITE LETTERS.
1 EXT. COUNTRY ROAD - LATE AFTERNOON 1
A hard autumn RAIN POUNDS a Morris Minor parked on the shoulder.
THROUGH the water-streaked WINDOWS, we see a blurred image of GORDON
LACHANCE, 37 , slumped down in the seat staring straight ahead.
2 INT. MORRIS MINOR - LATE. AFTERNOON 2
Lying on the dash is a crumpled copy of The Oregonian folded open to a
story whose headline reads "Local Attorney Fatally Stabbed in
Restaurant." Outside, a yellow school bus drops off a young boy.
Gordon watches as the buss drives off and the young boy, 12, yanks his
jacket up over his head and runs up the hill toward his house. THROUGH
THE WINDSHIELD we MOVE in on Gordon's face.
(the adult voice Of
In all of our lives there's a fall
from innocence. A time after
which we are never the same.
3 EXT. CASTLE ROCK (A BLUE-COLLAR MILL TOWN) - MORNING 3
It's 7:30 and already hot. "BIRDDOG" by The Everly Brothers BLEEDS IN
ON THE SOUNDTRACK. The twelve-year old GORDON LACHANCE, dark hair, sweet
face, walks across the shady common. Temporary platforms have been
erected and a banner over them advertises the Castle Rock "Labor Day"
I was twelve going on thirteen when I first saw a
dead human being.
Gordon kicks a can down a tired looking street.
It happened in 1960, a long time ago... although sometimes it doesn't
seem that long to me.
Gordie enters a vacant lot where a treehouse made of scavenged planks
swelter in the lower branches of an ancient elm.
4 INT. TREEHOUSE - MORNING 4
CHRIS CHAMBERS (12), good looking, dirty blond, all American, with a
fading black eye, sits across a ratty card table from Gordie. Between
them, TEDDY DUCHAMP (12), coke-bottle glasses and hair much longer than
either of them, draws a card from a stack and discards one in his hand.
How do you know a Frenchman's been
in your back yard?
Hey, I'm French, okay?
Your garbage cans are empty and
your dog is pregnant.
Didn't I just say I was French?
Gordie draws and gets nothing belpful. Teddy draws.
(thinking he's lost)
(slams his cards on the table)
Piss up a rope.
Gordie's out. Ole' Gordie just bit the bag and stepped out the
door. Eee-eee-eee ...
His laugh sounds like a rusty nail being hauled out a rotten board.
Teddy scratches the back of his head and we get a glimpse of a
flesh-colored hearing aid stuck into an ear that looks like a lump of
(as Teddy deals)
Teddy was the craziest guy we around with. His favorite sport was what he
called "truck dodging." He'd run out in front of the big rigs on 196 and let them
miss him by bare inches.
Gordie leaves the table and picks up a "Master
Detective" to read. Chris draws and discards.
I knock -
You four-eyed pile of shit.
The pile of shit has a thousand

Go ahead. Keep laughing. You're down to your ride, pal. Ccme on. Let's
Still grinning, Chris starts to shuffle.
Chris was the leader of our gang, and my best friend. He came from a
bad family and everybody thought he would turn out bad... including
We hear SOMEONE COMING FAST UP THE LADDER nailed to the side of the
elm. Chris stops dealing. A FIST RAPS on the underside of the

Gordie pulls the bolt. The TRAPDOOR BANGS UP and VERN TESSIO, another
twelve-year-old, raises himself into the clubhouse. He's sweating
buckets and his hair, which he usually keeps combed in a perfect
imitation of his rock and roll idol, Bobby Rydell, is plastered to his
bullet head in chunks and strings.
Wow, man! wait'll you hear this.
Chris and Teddy continue to play cards.
Lemma get my breath. I ran all
the way from my house.
I ran all the way home ...
CHRIS & GORDIE
(raggedly begin to harmonize with him)
Just to say I'm soh-ree ...
What can I say...
CHRIS & GORDIE
I ran all the way... yay, yay, yay.-.

Come on, you guys ... Listen to
me... This is boss. Come on...
Teddy, Chris, and Gordis continue to sing.
Okay. Okay. Forget it. I don't

Alright, Vern, what is it?
Okay, great. You won't believe
this. Sincerely. I...
TEDDY, CHRIS & GORDIE
I ran all the way home...
Screw you guys.
No, no, no. What is it?
Can you guys camp out tonight? I mean if you tell your folks we're
gonna tent out in my back field@
(begins to deal again)
Yeah, I guess so. But my dad's on
a mean streak.
(taps his black eye)
Drinkin', you know.
You got to, man. Sincerely. You won't believe this. Can you, Gordie?
So what are you pissing and moaning about, Vern-O?
What?!! You liar! You ain't got no pat hand! You didn't deal yourself
no pat hand.
Make your draw, shitheap.
Teddy reaches for the top card on the pile of bikes. Chris reaches for
his smoke on the ledge behind him. Gordie bends over to pick up his

Everybody stops and looks at Vern.

5 EXT. TESSIO HOUSE - EARLIER THAT MORNING 5
The front porch runs the length of the house -probably forty feet long
and seven feet wide. As the Narrator talks, we MOVE TOWARD a =all door
in the lattice-work skirt that fences the underside of the
When Vern was eight he buried a quart jar of pennies under his porch.
He drew a treasure map so he coula find them agaii. A week later his mom
cleaned out his room and threw away his map.
OUR VIEW at the small doorway and we...
6 UNDER THE PORCH 6
The ground looks like a prairie dog city with its little holes and
mounds of earth. Halfway toward the other end the twelve-year-old Vern
is digging obsessively with a short haidle hoe.
Vern had been trying to find those pennies for four years. Four years,
man. You didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
The SCREEN DOOR SLAMS open above him and Vern freezes in midstroke.
TWO PAIRS OF FOOTSTEPS cross the porch. Carefully Vern moves his
eyeballs to look through a crack in the boards. it , a his brother BILLY
and his juvenile delinquent friend, CHARLIE HOGAN -- both sixteen.
(in a travelling, cry-baby voice)
Jesus Christ, Billy, we gotta do something.
Why? Who says?
INTERCUT under porch and exterior porch.
But we saw him.
So? It's nothin' to us. The kid's dead so it's nuthin' to him,
neither. Who gives a shit if they ever find him? I don't. And the
girls didn't see him.
But it was that kid they been talking about on the radio.
Vern's head snaps around and he tries to get a look at them through the
Brocker, Brower, Flowers, whatever his name is. Train must have 'hit
We had all followed the Ray Brower story closely because he was a kid our age.
Three days before he'd gone out to pick blueberries and nobody'd seen, or heard from him since.
Billy lights a cigarette and flicks the match into the gravel
driveway. Vern doesn't want to miss any of this and begins to creep a
little closer to the steps.
I think we should tell the cops.
You don't go squawking to the cops after you boosted a car. They'd
want to know how we got way the hell out an the Back Harlow Road. They
know we ain't got no car. It's better if we just keep our mouths shut.
Then they can't touch us.
We could make a nornamus call.
They trace those calls, stupid. I
seen it on Highway Patrol and Dragnet.
Yeah, right. I wish we'd never boosted that goddamned Dodge. If Ace'd
been with us, we could have told the cops we was in his car.
Well, he wasn't.
We gonna tell him?
We ain't gonna tell nobody.
nobody never. You dig me?
Christ Jesus, I wish we never
boosted that goddamned Dodge.
Aw, shut up and come on.
TWO pairs of legs clad in tight, wash-faded jeans, two
pairs of feet in black engineer boots with side
buckles, come down the steps and 'keep going.
7 INT. TREEBOUSE - MORNING 7
The boys' positions around Vern have changed. They're
all sitting facing him now.
I know the Back Harlow Road. It
comes to a dead end by the Royal
River. The train tracks are right
there. Me and my dad used to fish
for cossies out there.
If they'd known you were under
there, they would have killed you.
Everybody nods in agreement. Then the idea begins to
Could he have gotten all the way
from Chamerlain to Harlow? That's
twenty or thirty miles.
I think so. He musta started
walking on the train tracks and
followed them the whole way.
Yeah. And after dark a train must
have come along and...
(drives his right
fist into his

Yeah. I bet you anything it we
find him we'll get our pictures in
Yeah! We could even be on TV.
Sure. If we can find the body and
report it, we'll be an the news.
We'll be heroes.
I dunno. Billy will know where I
He won't care. Because it'll be us guys that find that kid, not Billy
and Charlie Hogan in a boosted car. They'll probably pin a medal on
Yeah? Yeah, you think so?!
But what will we tell our folks?
Just what you said. We all tell our folks we're tenting in your back
yard, and you tell your folks you're sleeping over at Teddy's. And
that the next morning we're all going over to hang out at the drag
races. We're rock solid 'til dinner tomorrow night.
But if we find that kid's body over in South Barlow, they'll know we
didn't go to the drag races. We'll get hided.
No, we won't. Everybody'll be so
excited about what we found.
(thinks about it)
My dad'Il hide me, anyway. Hell, it's worth a hiding. Let's do it.
What do you say, Gordie?
I don't know.
Vern... Vern-o ... Come on, it'll

in the air)
LACHANCE HOUSE - DAY
We PUSH IN on an upstairs window and see Gordie moving back and forth
in the room.
Our plans were set and we all went about the business of preparing for
9 INT. GORDIE'S ROOM - MIDDAY 9
With a hot dog wrapped in Wonder Bread stuck in his mouth, Gardie is
getting ready for his trip. He Pulls two blankets out of a drawer and
throws them an the bed. With his hands free he tries to take another
bite off the hot dog only to have it squirt out onto the floor.
Casually, he picks it up, blows the lint off, and sticks it back in his
mouth. He straightens a sheaf of handwritten pages, the title of which is
"The Secret of the Living Dead" by Gordon Lachance.
He hears FOOTSTEPS coming down the hall and ',hides the pages under a
stack of comic books.
Gordie's FATHER, a tall, stooped man with a tired face and gray hair,
walking aimlessly down the hall, glances into Gordie's room. There's an
(trying to make
You want a Rollo, Dad?
The Father continues down the hall. After a beat, Gordie collects all
the loose change and a watch off the top of the dresser and puts them in
10 INT. TEDDY'S ROOM - MIDDAY 10
There's an Army recruiting poster above his bad. Child-like crayon
drawings of battle scenes decorate another wall. There's a faded 8X10
of his father as a young man in combat gear propped up an the dresser.
Cheap plastic models of planes, tanks and ships litter the room.
Teddy takes a set of dog tags off his father's picture and pulls them over his head. Humming
the Marine hymn Teddy puts on a cut-down battle blouse and tucks it
into a pair of fatigue pants.
(looking at himself
in the mirror)
He turns around and searches the floor for a helmet liner. When he
finds it he scoops it up and returns to the mirror to put it on. He
picks up a web belt with a canteen hooked onto it and buckles it around
Ahh... Too cool!
He increases the volume of the Marine hymn as he goes to the closet and
drags out a full-length greatcoat. He comes back to the mirror and
struggles into it.
Too cool ...
(after a Pause, feeling the
weight of the jacket)
He starts to take it off.
11 INT. CHRIS' ROOM - MIDDAY 11
While his FATHER, unshaven, 40's, snores bare-assed on a filthy bed
surrounded by empty wine battles, Chris is very carefully pulling Winstons out of a
12 INT. KITCHEN - VERN'S HOUSE - MIDDAY 12
Vern is sitting alone at the kitchen table shoveling Spaghetti-O'S into
his mouth. Anxious to leave, he gets up from the table.
Bye, Ma, see you tomorrow.
Vern, You're not going anywhere until you finish
everything on that plate.
Vern, with half a plate still in front of him, is
momentarily stopped. He sees the open kitchen window.
He picks up the plate and, with a flick of the wrist,
launches the remainder of the Spaghetti-O's Out the window.
(setting down the now-empty plate)
All finished, Ma.
(as Vern heads out)
Okay, have a good time.
