Secrets Of The Movies Reoealed What U the most difffcnlt kind of motion nleture scenario to writer - A. A cofUjodj- scenario is the hardest of all to write. Directors of most ncreen oooedles defend very little upon scenarios and usually make np the comedy ma toey go along, or coarse they usually have some idea as to the plot and bow it ends. Host comedy directors seem to work anon the idea that if they can make their film funny enough the audience will forget and care less about the lack of plot. Q.
