Done before

Essanay was an early film company best remembered for their work with Charlie Chaplin.

This is apparently their standard rejection note for budding scriptwriters.

Don't know about you but I reckon about 90% of films today would have had their scripts knocked back by Essanay.

As a creative director I find the list fascinating as I've often killed off ideas based on issues or concerns in the list.

Especially number 5.
