Listening to the latest episode of The Incomparable podcast on the work of Aaron Sorkin, I found out that his second film writing credit was as co-author both the story and screenplay of 1993's Malice.
Somehow the film's Sorkin connection had never registered with me. I wouldn't have expected to notice his name when I saw the film at the cinema, what with his only prior big screen credit at that point being as the author of A Few Good Men1 and most of the attention at the time going to Jack Nicholson's "you can't handle the truth!" speech, but I'm a bit surprised that even once Sorkin had got my attention courtesy of The American President and The West Wing and Sports Night I never picked up on his having been the author of the script that gave Alec Baldwin a chance to explain just Who was in Operating Room Number 2 on November 17th:
- A film I still haven't got round to seeing to this day, oddly enough. ↩
