I recently saw a nice film called "The Scout" (1994). It has a great pedigree: written by Albert Brooks and Andrew Bergman, directed by Michael Ritchie. It's about this young baseball player, who has great talent but an uncontrollable temper. Brooks finds him and signs him up with the Yankees. But, the kid has to see a psychiatrist (Diane Wiest)who finds out he suffered from an abusive father. So why wasn't there a plagiarism suit? ---------------------- Robert Kolker English Department University of Maryland College Park, MD 20742 [log in to unmask] http://www.otal.umd.edu/~rkolker 301.405.6250 ---- Screen-L is sponsored by the Telecommunication & Film Dept., the University of Alabama.
