GUEST,Jim Knowledge BS: Racial stereotypes in retellings? (298* d) RE: BS: Racial stereotypes in retellings? 17 Oct 11

I `ad one of them film directors in my cab once. `e wanted to go to Elstree Studios to finish off that Roman epic about gladiators.
I said, " `ere Cecil. As a matter of interest do you change things when you`re re-telling a story on film?"
`e said, " Too true, we do sometimes, Jim. When the Barbers Union got wind of us doing the first "Sweeny Todd" film they went ape demanding changes. They claimed they would all be tarred with the same brush and go broke so instead of being a barber and slitting throats old Sweeny ran a stray dogs `ome and made `is pies from them!!"

Whaddam I Like??
