Great Scott


While he’s not name-checked, the 1984-themed ad to pro­mote the Macin­tosh that Jobs and John Scul­ley (Jeff Daniels) squab­ble over was the work of Ridley Scott. “I rang Ridley [to let him know],” says Boyle. “Not to ask his per­mis­sion — we didn’t ask any­one for their per­mis­sion, be­cause they wouldn’t have given it. Even [Ap­ple] were quite con­trary. But Ridley was great. He was de­lighted it was in there. Fun­nily enough, when they first aired it, the Or­well es­tate told them not to screen it again be­cause it in­fringed copy­right.”
