Billy Hayes and his life story were made into the 1978 movie "Midnight Express", which told the true story of an American backpacker who was jailed for trying to sneak a few kilos of grade-A hashish back into the United States. With a screenplay by Oliver Stone (earning him his first Oscar), a haunting electro score by Giorgio Moroder (also scoring an Oscar) and a riveting performance from then newcomer Brad Davis, Midnight Express became a breakout hit that would forever be ingrained in the memories of many a viewer.

Meet: Billy Hayes.

Mr. Media Interviews by Bob Andelman

Midnight Express was one of the scariest movies I ever saw. It was probably one of the most horrifying films you ever saw, too. The story of Billy Hayes, an American tourist caught attempting to leave Turkey by plane in 1970 with bags of hashish taped to his stomach, for which he was subsequently jailed for five years – and, with only 42 days left to serve, resentenced to life in prison – was made into a major motion picture starring Brad Davis and written by Oliver Stone.

BILLY HAYES, author of the bestselling Turkish prison memoir "Midnight Express" is our special guest this Sunday night!

BILLY has been writing, acting, and directing since his bestseller "Midnight Express" was published in 1976. The memoir about his arrest and time in Turkish prisons was quickly adapted into the Academy Award-winning motion picture released in 1978. He followed up with two sequel books, "Midnight Return," about his experiences after escaping, and "Letters from a Turkish Prison--1970-1975."

In 2010 the British TV series "Locked Up Abroad" gave BILLY a chance to retell his story in his own words in interviews as well as theatrical re-enactment. The overwhelming response to this program attracted producer Barbara Ligeti, who developed and premiered "Riding the Midnight Express with Billy Hayes" at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013. Since then the show has played Off-Broadway in New York twice, London, Edinburgh, Melbourne and Beirut as well as other American cities. Additional international engagements are being planned. The documentary, "Midnight Return-the Story of Billy Hayes and Turkey," has recently screened at the Santa Barbara, Newport Beach and Cannes Film Festival.
