Inspired by Irving Grant Thalberg
Irving Grant Thalberg was an American film producer during the early years of motion pictures known as “The Boy Wonder” for his youth and his extraordinary ability to select the right scripts, right actors, and make hundreds of very profitable films. His movies include Mutiny on the Bounty, Gone With the Wind and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. It was Thalberg who first coined the terms, film doctor and title doctor, as he referred to his secretary who he often commissioned to read scripts and fix films and titles. As Thalberg once stated, “the difference between something good and something superior is often very small.” In our case, something as seemingly small as a title should never be underestimated.
