The New York Post‘s Page Six just called me saying Harvey Weinstein has told them he’ll give $1 million to charity if I can produce the Scott Rudin email about HW’s alleged callous treatment of Anthony Minghella’s and Sydney Pollack’s families.

I’ve blacked out the recipient of the message as well as SR’s email address:
