Movies are moving pictures that cheerfully re-depict the tragedies of other people. They accurately portray loss of life, limb, heartbreak, hatred and racism — which, astonishingly, the average moviegoer watches, stone-faced and expressionless, or perhaps munches his popcorn slightly faster than before.

For example, the reader will recall that moguls "green-lighted" Star Trek for production after it was "pitched" to them as " Wagon Train to the stars." What the reader might not know is that this was the last in a series of less successful "pitches," which included that the show would:
