Harry Nilsson headed up Nilsson House Productions with his associates, his lawyer, Dennis Bond, and Larry Gordon. In 1970, Nilsson House Productions purchased the film rights to a short-story by Kurt Vonnegut with filming expected to begin by mid-1970.[1]


Although a film based on Vonnegut's "The Paradise Hat" was never made, Nilsson's partner, Larry Gordon, later produced The Point!.
