"B" is broad-based

hile attempting to explain why voters chose Crash over Brokeback Mountain, Peter Guber, chairman of Mandalay Pictures, said, "This is a very broad-based professional organization. When it came down to the craft of filmmaking, I think the academy decided that Ang Lee deserved the director award, but in terms of the themes of the film, they were much more interested in Crash. The membership is older and more conservative than some of those other groups, and I think it was reflected in the choice that they made."

"C" is conscripted

hen Ennis inquired as to whether or not he'd be coming back to Brokeback next year, Jack said he might be, if he didn't get conscripted into the Army.

"D" is dog-eared

hittling was one way Ennis whiled away the hours of the days up on Brokeback; another was leafing through a dog-eared copy of Hamley's saddle catalog.

hen Jack got Ennis' message about his divorce, he immediately headed for Riverton to see him, delighted to learn of his free-agent status.
