    I guess we’ll see how this event plays out in the upcoming mini-series. I read the book the mini-series is based on when it came out. I can’t really remember it all but I have the lingering impression that this Oscar season was very stressful on him and like said above he was having great doubts about his abilities as a film director.

    I do remember that despite their divorce Verdon came to Germany and helped him on the film. There are moments in the trailer that seem to dramatize that.

    ^Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon never got a divorce, they only separated.

    Mank was nominated that year for his work on Slueth. And yeah Eastwood was pulled from the audience because Charlton Heston was late and no one tried to update the cue cards so he’s reading these cards that are very specific to Heston. Fortunately, he got saved midway through when Heston showed up. It’s pretty great:
