Likely was Greer pulling from his limited reference pool of Jewish names. He doesn't really research this stuff, he just takes his limited reference pool and churns out whatever he thinks will get noticed.I dunno, you may be right. The script is workmanlike but uninspired, and Russ has shown to have great difficulty even correctly delineating cliches; actually it's one of the things that he's notably the worst at. There are too many things in the script that it seems like Russ wouldn't know. I find it hard to believe Russ knows the word "Jewess".
Russ's daily writing is full of grammatical and spelling mistakes, and more often than not mistakes of usage. Usage errors seem to be his main problem with writing. He doesn't understand sayings, he doesn't understand metaphor, and he butchers cliches.
Also, am I reading this wrong or is one of the random concentration camp prisoners in the script named Einstein? Like, or is it supposed to be Albert Einstein? Surely not right?
