Re: Marsh-Cope rivalry to be movie comedy and other news stories

From: Ben Creisler

It appears it may be difficult to come up with a sustained comic take
on the Marsh and Cope rivalry.

For a sort of comic take on paleontology in 19th century, this old
episode of the Rin Tin Tin TV show "Rinty Finds a Bone" comes to mind.
I remember watching this as a kid. In this case, though, the two
paleontologists are brothers (not rivals) and evidently come from
Germany or some German-speaking region of Europe. Apologies to DML
members in Germany and Austria for the stereotype.
