Does anyone know a film (theatrical, made for tv, whatever), in which one
of the main characters is being pressured to sign a contract or a letter
of resignation, where he finally signs and the people who got him to sign
pick up the sheet triumphantly and see that he signed an absurd name, like
George Washington or Albert Einstein? I'm certain I saw this on a screen
(rather than read it in the pages of a book), but can recall no more about the
scene or context. I'd appreciate any help--either identification of films
where the scene I describe (or something close to it) happens, or sources
I might check.
