    Your rule of thumb regarding the nuebmr of screen writers attached to a film is wrong or at least one where there is sometimes an exception to the general rule, my friend. For example, one of the greatest films of all-time, Casablanca, lists at least five people in the credits: Julius J. Epstein (screenplay), Philip G. Epstein (screenplay) and Howard Koch (screenplay). Additional credits go to Murray Burnett and Joan Alison for the play Everybody Comes to Rick’s. Casey Robinson is given uncredited recognition. I understand numerous other writers worked on the script at various times during its development and the film’s production.
