Sturges is quite a choice; he'd bring something, to be sure. But given the ADD times in which we live, they'd wind up having Baird or one of his acolytes overcut the thing and destroy the natural tempos of the director.
If you're going to insult us lowly plebs, at least be knowledgeable enough to know that it's no longer known as "ADD" but "ADHD-I." Hasn't been called that since 1994.
I heard ADHD when I was diagnosed (but I wasn't paying that much attention), but not the -I.

Is that like the -R in TOS-R?

Also, I'm used to seeing the ADD ref because it has been used about 7 million times with respect to the editing on QUANTUM OF SOLACE.

EDIT ADDON: Y'know, just occurred to me. Maybe not hearing about the -I is because I've had to be back with Kaiser for the last decade? God knows, they certainly were behind the times in the late 80s/early 90s, when I kept falling asleep in early afternoon at work and was begging every doctor for a diabetes test ... they told me to buy 'How to get control of the time in your life.' (when I finally got Blue Cross, they instantly found I was pegged off the charts diabetic (for months the meter almost always read HI, which is what you get when your blood sugar is over 600.)
