I've wondered about archives in general. What do you have to do to get inside them? If I can't access them, why the hell not? And why is the material only available in archives. You'd think, particularly for most screenwriters, that it would be better for their legacy to have the material easily available in some form, whether free or not I don't care, as long as the cost isn't prohibitive which it probably would be though. Do archivists just figure that hardly anybody is interested?

Archivists' priority is preservation, not access. And there are significant copyright hurdles regarding duplication and circulation - for starters, unless the screenwriter completely failed to sell the script to anyone, they're unlikely to have any personal say in what happens to it.

Which is why archives generally prefer people to have appropriate research credentials.

Oh that's a shame. His work on the original Django is great.

Bacalov was 84. Men live less than women.
I didn't know he was Italian by option. (Still Argentinian too? Probably)

That's another closed chapter (Chapter not book I should stress) in a major Hollywood event, regardless of Polanksi's later behavior. I confess I'm not sure how much of Manson was lucid and how much wasn't. I only say that because in interviews he gives very blunt, honest answers that could only be made by someone quite lucid but they are sandwiched between overtly cartoonish behavior. I guess we'll never know.

Although I find the notion crude his early recording work is available to listen to on iTunes no less. Spoiler alert. He isn't The Beach Boys or The Beatles.

Jana Novotná at age 49
Her weeping on the shoulder of HRH The Duchess of Kent, after losing the Wimbledon Singles Final in 1993, was one of sport's most unexpected and moving moments. Dobrou noc Jana.

It is absolutely worth listening to the gargantuan You Must Remember This series on the Manson murders - still probably the crowning achievement of that podcast in its size and scale, and though it isn't as long on gory detail as some of the more clinical and obsessive books out there, you will absolutely walk away feeling as if the timelines and players are fully fleshed out (no pun intended, I swear) for you. Including Manson, perhaps, as you alluded to, the most unknowable element of the entire affair.

Quick update: Karina Longworth spent today giving this series its own podcast feed. It can be found here, titled You Must Remember Manson.
