This guy is just giving away all the great secrets to writing screenplays on youtube. Who couldn't write a great screenplay after watch just 2 of those videos?

Hilarious. I feel like such a dunce now - watched the movie, really enjoyed it, but didn't realize how poorly I'd grasped the 510-plus stages.

I sort of enjoyed this. The academia of screenplays! We didn't get to see much of him. Does he have frizzy hair like Einstein?

Actually, I was thinking how I'd need this guy to accompany me to pitches for my most recent script, where even I trip over the metaphors, allegories and layers. Think the studio execs will stay awake, or would it be a cure for their insomnia?!

Not giving away. He's trying to bait you with the youtube videos. It actually costs 200 bucks to download all 510+ stages.

How could I have missed the fact that "Casablanca" and "When Harry Met Sally" follow the exact same template?

Just replace the "letters of transit" at the center of Casablanca with Harry and Sally's search for romantic partners, and you've got essentially the same movie.

I just emailed this link to David Seidler. I'm sure this is exactly what was in his head before he sat down to write TKS.

My favourite part: "Lionel gets a medal etc. Yada, yada, yada."

Really? You have his address?

I suppose you know he suffered from 'stuttering' too?
