Scott, thanks for sharing this little gem. If it wasn’t for your article, I probably would never have even heard of Paddy Chayefsky. Perhaps I will make a foray into the legendary screenwriters’ oeuvre.

Watching golden oldies like is much like reading a classic novel, say like Dostoevsky. We don’t treat classic films like we do classic novels; hence many are all but buried in history and carried merely in the minds of screenbuffs. Keep this series a-comin’. Some of us cannot afford film school after all :)!

…also waiting for your article on First Reformed.
