On Bad Scripts : Larry McMurtry : 1987

My experiences have convinced me tht behind every bad movie there is a brad script; also, that behind most good movies there is a bad script, over which some resourceful director has won a victory; finally, that in the desk drawers and studio files of Hollywood there are thousands of unproduced bad scripts, more numerous than toads during the rain of toads, and not much more cinematic.
