Mandel and Ganz seem fairly unnecessary to this track, other than the occasional telling remark about the intricacies of comedy writing, Diamond is surprisingly interesting in his production stories and Lemmon's inclusion seems very tokenistic. So let's here it for Curtis for saving this track with his hysterical stories and presumptions. God bless him. 6/10

I like this track. Curtis has the best storys about the movie and about Monroe. Very warm hearted and funny. Lemmon‘s parts are too short (source is an interview from 1984) and made no impression on me.

Diamond’s son talks a lot about his father‘s working relationship with Wilder and about the studio. The two writers are a nice addition. They talk a lot about the script and why it is so unique. They compare it with the scripts today.

The track is well edited. All participations are very engaged. A good addition to the movie.

8 out of 10.
