The Essanay Film Manufacturing Company was in business from 1907-1925. It was noted for a series of silent Charlie Chaplin films. Pictured above is a manuscript rejection notice, presumably mailed to writers who contacted the company.

In the comments, make suggestions for disqualifiers that you would like to see on a modern version of this document.

27. Remake of a Japanese movie and not as good as the original
28. Remake of an existing Hollywood movie that should be left alone as it's a classic
29. A shot for shot remake of Psycho will fail
30. A series of movies with related themes/characters should be limited to three (adaptations of a book series exempted)
31. Book adaptations will remain faithful to the original material (Blade Runner exempted)
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
