Reflections to follow tomorrow on two great quotes attributed to real people but actually written by screenwriters:

1) “Follow the money.” Attributed to the Watergate informant “Deep Throat” in the movie All the President’s Men but actually written by screenwriter William Goldman.

2) “This we know: the earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. All things are connected.” Attributed to Chief Seattle, of the Suquamish Nation in the film Home, but actually written by screenwriter Ted Perry.
