“Wynn Loses ‘Song’ TV Credit Case.” Article by Aljean Harmetz. New York Times, 18 January. An arbitration panel of the Writers Guild of America awarded Mailer sole credit for the four-hour TV series based on The Executioner’s Song. Wynn accepted the verdict; Mailer said “I confess to liking my script much more than Tracy’s; Schiller said, “At least 10 to 15 percent of Norman’s scenes were new scenes that weren’t in the book, and his new dialogue added underpinning to the characters.” See 82.1a.
