13 Screenplays: UPDATED

Okay, another quiz. I'll make it easy on you, though, as I'll give you the answers. Just not in the right order. No search engines, damn you! Your knowledge (or your guesses) only!

Match the screenplay with the credited screenwriter (debates about uncredited or rewrites or who wrote the book or blah blah blah will be barfed on -- I'm looking for who was credited screenwriter):

UPDATE: I made a mistake with #12! Shouldn't have been Broadcast News -- Supposed to be Princess Bride. Sorry!

    Final Score: Cheezy-5, Jen-3, Paula-3, David-1 (well, 2 if you count the one he got wrong but still swears he got right). Where was Pillock on this, btw? Figured he'd weigh in on a few.

    1. The Verdict: E. David Mamet (Cheezy)

    2. Chinatown: I. Robert Towne (Cheezy)

    3. Network: G. Paddy Chayefsky (Cheezy)

    4. True Romance: B. Quentin Tarantino (Paula)

    5. Adaptation: J. Charlie Kaufman (Jen)

    8. Unforgiven: A. David Webb Peoples (Cheezy)

    10. The Shawshank Redemption: H. Frank Darabont (Jen)

    12. Princess Bride: M. William Goldman (David, though I'm giving a point to Cheezy, Paula and Jen too because of my goof)

    13. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial: F. Melissa Mathison (Paula)

    No One Solved

    6. To Kill a Mockingbird: L. Horton Foote

    7. On the Waterfront: K. Budd Schulberg

    9. North by Northwest: D. Ernest Lehman

    11. Raiders of the Lost Ark: C. Lawrence Kasden
