It may be of interest to know of this story regarding emergency screenwriting, on what was and is, a cinematic masterpiece:

When "The Godfather" was being filmed, the director realized they needed a transfer of power scene from Don Corleone to his son Michael. Marlon Brando was slated to wrap up his scenes very shortly. Acclaimed script doctor Robert Towne agreed to do the work and immediately flew out to New York where the movie was being filmed. Towne worked feverishly from midnight until 4am to write the scene, then he delivered his words to director Francis Ford Coppola, who immediately shot the scene. When it was in the can, Brando's service to the movie was complete, and he departed.

At the Oscars® the following year, that very scene was played as the clip for the Best Picture award (which it won.) What scene was it? Michael Corleone had taken the family reins from Don Corleone. At one point, they were in the garden talking. The senior Corleone expressed his regret about there not having been a senator or governor from the family. Michael responded: "We'll get there, pop. We'll get there."

You can believe he was very well paid for his work. And the rest, as they say, is cinematic history.
