    “When They See Us” was for Netflix, rather than HBO.

    William Wyler preferred his bowdlerized “These Three” to his less censored remake (which is verbally explicit about the Shirley MacLaine character). From what I’ve seen of both, I agree. Her analogous character has more dignity and attains a moral victory at the end even if she doesn’t get the conventional happy ending (but certainly better than MacLaine gets).

    Perhaps they just wouldn’t make “The Alamo” at all today.

    I’ve read “Everybody Comes to Rick’s”. The titular character is much less likable. I understand why Hollywood changed that. http://vincasa.com/Screenplay-Everybody_Comes_to_Rick%27s.pdf
