{original post had no questions}

"FWIW, and I speak from no direct knowledge, only overheard
scuttlebutt, Paramount *couldn't* film what Harlan wrote. They simply
didn't have the budget. It got "hacked", I grant you, but it got
hacked into a filmable format. The world's best screenplay is
worthless if it can't be filmed."

Except that in this case, it *was* filmable...the rest is the
mythology that's grown up around it.
