Here’s is a sample from Down and Dangerous, showing the written scene with the final version in the movie. This one is interesting because of how little changed, although the location of Rafael’s Office was nixed in favor for a larger space. The biggest take away here is how much the actors bring to the scene. In many cases the words are the same, but the performances emerge as their own animal — often turning what had been a statement into a question, or a question into an exclamation! And of course, the magic of Rafael’s mocking laugh was not scripted but capped the scene beautifully.
