October 31, 1998
I started preparing a dialogue sheet for HONEYMOON tonight, watching a
tape of the film with script and remote control in hand, and noting all
the differences between the dialogue in the script and in the finished
film. In the two and a third years since the shoot, this is really
the first time I've bothered to think about which lines of dialogue the
actors changed; for the most part I thought Edith and Dylan did a very
nice job of staying close to the spirit of the scene when they made adjustments.
I managed to get through all of the film script except the largely-improvised
yard sale scene, which will take more work than
all the other scenes combined.
