Fair use rationale for Image:Heiress wyler.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Heiress wyler.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Plain Face[edit]

I would have liked to have seen the insider story about how the stunning Olivia de Havilland was transformed into a plain-faced girl for this movie. I didn't believe it was her.

I think that this oversimplifies the plot. When Catherine talks to her father about Morris, I think he does threaten to disinherit her. He also asks her to reconsider, including the line (as I remember it): "Of course, he is after the inheritance. Why else would any man be interested in you?" Conversation stops after that, and when she next sees Morris, she tells him that there is a new plan: instead of getting married in secret and trusting that her father will later accept the marriage and support them in the mansion, they will leave and Morris must work to support them. He agrees and promises to be back soon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:39, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Credits for Film[edit]

I modified the infobox to reflect the film credits. They were written to suggest that the play and the novel were written by Henry James and the play was not. The film lists the writers as Ruth and Augustus Goetz and that it was based on their play "The Heiress". The play was "Suggested by" (per the credits) the novel Washington Square by Henry James. Not sure exactly how "double credits" need to be handled, but this seems a good compromise over the incorrect version in the infobox. Using the "story" credit buts the novel above the play.AbramTerger (talk) 12:52, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

The "based on" field should be restricted to the work the film was "based on"—in this case the play. If the play was "suggested by" the novel, that should not be included in this field, but captured in the production section. For example:
The screenplay for The Heiress was written by Ruth and Augustus Goetz, based on their play of the same title. According to the film credits, their play was suggested by the 1880 novel Washington Square by Henry James.
The infobox was not intended to capture all credits. Bede735 (talk) 13:18, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. I have removed the "suggested by" entry in the infoboxAbramTerger (talk) 13:26, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
