In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a film that took some rescuing from a Hollywood studio, and another that required one hell of a deal to even get going.

A Few Good Men started off as a Broadway hit: but come the movie version, executives were really rather keen to cram a sex scene in the middle of it. And its first-time screenwriter was powerless to stop it.

As for The Simpsons Movie, it was a project mooted for well over a decade – and when it finally went ahead, it was a top secret race to the finish.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
