One of Ernest Lehman's most remarkable achievements was fathering a child at age 86. As a screenwriter, he was Oscar nominated five times, for SABRINA (1954), NORTH BY NORTHWEST (1959), WEST SIDE STORY (1961), WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? (1966) and HELLO DOLLY! . The dozens of short pieces in "Screening Sickness" are at times snarkily condescending, at others angry parodies of the American culture as it relates to motion pictures, both inside the industry and with "civilians.

Lehman is best when not straining for angry laughs, when sticking close to his own experience: there's a very short but lightly evocative glimpse of the working process with Hitchcock (""He looks at you with great sympathy and says, But, Ernie, that's the way they do it in the movies""); there's an obvious but sadly effective sketch about a producer who lives on memories of a long-ago hit; and there's a nice quartet of anecdotes-in which four Lehman colleagues (Hitchcock, Mike Nichols, Cary Grant, Billy Wilder) put the movie business in proper perspectiv.
