Over on the moderated newsgroup a poster reported seeing a 'Changeling' TV ad. Perhaps most exciting for us fans is that JMS's name is above Clint Eastwood's...and naturally, takes up the whole line. He took a screenshot:

Jan,

Since Changeling is a Universal film, there is a strong possibility that the TV ad will be on NBC this week. I first saw trailers for Flash of Genius and The Express on Heroes two weeks before their premieres.

Changeling TV Ad on tonight's Heroes

The Changeling TV ad appeared on tonight's Heroes at 42 minutes after the hour. You may be able to see the ad if you live in the Mountain or Pacific time zones.

I saw the ad a second time tonight on Boston Legal at 25 minutes after the hour.

<sob> I haven't caught the ad yet.

Here's an interview with Clint and Anglina where Clint tells how JMS stumbled upon the story originally. http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/artic...34/story.jhtml Careful, the interview sound is low and the commercial sound is huge.

I am tempted to call the local NBC affiliate and other TV stations to find out when the ad for Changeling will be shown. It looks like the ad buy is similar that for Flash of Genius.

Fortunately, there is a fairly accurate transcript in addition to the video.

Wasn't the friend working at City Hall though, or something? I seem to remember Joe telling the story at the Cannes press conference, and the friend was a source at City Hall, back from when Joe worked at the L.A. Times. Or maybe my memory has gone all swiss cheeze.

Yes, as I recall, this was somebody who worked for the city or courthouse who contacted JMS because the records were about to be destroyed.

A source JMS had at City Hall

This is from the 38 page production notes available at Universal's 2008 For Your Consideration website. A link to the Word document, Changeling_Notes.doc, is at the bottom of the Production Notes page. Please note: there are spoilers on this website.

Quote:
The history of Los Angeles is marked by sensational tales of corruption, cover-ups and murder during the cityÆs formative years. From the Roscoe ôFattyö Arbuckle rape and murder trial of young starlet Virginia Rappe in 1921 and the kidnapping of evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson in 1926 to the Black Dahlia murder in 1947, scandal has long permeated the city and shone unfavorable light upon her political operatives.
But it was the little-remembered story of one working-class womanÆs struggleùamidst insurmountable oddsùto find her missing son that would, almost 80 years later, forge a partnership between several of HollywoodÆs most highly regarded filmmakers. The incredible tale of Christine Collins was one that almost vanished to obscurity before a former journalist stumbled upon her sensational, poignant story.
Within the subterranean halls of Los Angeles City Hall, the dusty archives of city business dating back almost 100 years are housed. Among these tens of thousands of pages of documents lies the public record of Christine Collins and the City Council welfare hearings from the late 1920s. They tell a patchwork tale of the disappearance of her young nine-year-old son, Walter, and the corrupt machinations of the Los Angeles Police Department during and after the flawed investigation of the case.
Several years ago, screenwriter J. Michael Straczynski, a former journalist who has written for Los Angeles Times, The Herald Examiner and Time, among other publications, stumbled across this astonishing story of a working-class woman who brought down a political machine. As the adage is written, a reporter is only as good as his sources, and Straczynski knew he had a lead when a longtime contact phoned him up.
Recalls the screenwriter: ôA source I had at City Hall called one day and said they were burning old records and that there was something I should take a look at before they put it into the incinerator. So I zoomed down to City Hall, and they had a transcript of a City Council welfare hearing in the case of Christine Collins. I began reading the testimony and thought, æThis canÆt actually have happened. This has got to be a mistake.Æ But it was enough for me to get hooked before the book went into the fire.ö
