The Dirty Harry Films / Dirty Harry Script
« on: November 16, 2007, 02:05:20 PM »
Hello everyone, I was wondering if it was possible to get a script of Dirty Harry or Sudden Impact online for free.  My dad is taking a college course on script writing and they have to do a project where they show a scene from a film and analyze it, and he has chosen Dirty Harry.  He needs a copy of the script for the project so if any of you know how to get one it would be much appreciated.

Off-Topic Discussion / New Loch Ness Footage

Anyone hear about this?

Fabled monster caught on video
POSTED: 8:43 p.m. EDT, May 31, 2007

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) -- Like tartan, bagpipes, and shortbread Scotland's Loch Ness Monster is as much an emblem as a tourist draw.

And now Nessie's back.

An amateur scientist has captured what Loch Ness Monster watchers say is among the finest footage ever taken of the elusive mythical creature reputed to swim beneath the waters of Scotland's most mysterious lake. (Watch the 'monster' footage )

"I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this jet black thing, about 45-feet (15 meters) long, moving fairly fast in the water," said Gordon Holmes, the 55-year-old a lab technician from Shipley, Yorkshire, who took the video this past Saturday.

He said it moved at about 6 mph (10 kph) and kept a fairly straight course.

"My initial thought is it could be a very big eel, they have serpent-like features and they may explain all the sightings in Loch Ness over the years."

Loch Ness is surrounded by myth and mystery, as it is the largest and deepest inland expanse of water in Britain. About 750 feet (230 meters) to the bottom, it's even deeper than the North Sea.

Nessie watcher and marine biologist Adrian Shine of the Loch Ness 2000 center in Drumnadrochit, on the shores of the lake, viewed the video and hopes to properly analyze it in the coming months.

"I see myself as a skeptical interpreter of what happens in the loch, but I do keep an open mind about these things and there is no doubt this is some of the best footage I have seen," Shine said.

He said the video is particularly useful because Holmes panned back to get the background shore into the shot. That means it was less likely to be a fake and provided geographical bearings allowing one to calculate how big the creature was and how fast it was traveling.

While many sightings can be attributed to a drop of the local whisky, legends of Scottish monsters date back to one of the founders of the Christian church in Scotland, St. Columba, who wrote of them in about 565 A.D.

More recently, there have been more than 4,000 purported Nessie sightings since she was first caught on camera by a surgeon on vacation in the 1930s.

Since then, the faithful have speculated whether it is a completely unknown species, a sturgeon -- even though they have not been native to Scotland's waters for many years -- or even a last surviving dinosaur.

Shine doubts that last explanation.

"There are a number of possible explanations to the sightings in the loch. It could be some biological creature, it could just be the waves of the loch or it could be some psychological phenomenon in as much as we see what we want to see," he said.

But Nessie isn't just an icon of the paranormal -- she's also an emblem of Scottish tourism. She has been the muse for cuddly toys and immortalized on T-shirts and posters showing her classic three-humped image.

The Scottish media is skeptical of Nessie stories but Holmes' footage is of such good quality that even the normally reticent BBC Scotland aired the video on its main news program on Tuesday.

I just heard about this from

"Extremely sad news for one of our TV faves.

I've just spoken with Jenna Fischer's representative who confirmed to me that the Office star slipped and fell down a marble staircase on Monday and fractured her lower back in four places.

Jenna was hospitalized Monday night and is now resting in her hotel room until she can regain enough strength to fly home to Los Angeles. She is expected to recover in about four to six weeks.

I'm told Jenna's close friend and costar Angela Kinsey (who plays Angela on The Office) did not leave her side Monday and Tuesday and that Jenna's husband, James Gunn, dropped everything and flew out here to New York to be with her.

I've actually seen the very stairwell where the accident happened (though I was not there at the time) and can tell you it is incredibly steep, especially for someone wearing high heels. It could have been any of us who walked those very same steps, and honestly, my heart just goes out to her. Jenna, best wishes for a quick and thorough recovery."

This is really sad.  Jenna Fischer rules. :'(  Here's hoping she gets well soon.

Questions & Answers / Maggie's Broken Nose
« on: April 11, 2007, 06:50:04 PM »
I was watching the bonus disc of Million Dollar Baby and noticed that the actress/boxer who played "The Blue Bear" said that Hillary Swank suffered a broken nose during the making of the film.  I was wondering if the scene where she gets a broken nose in the movie is this real broken nose or did the broken nose occur off screen?
