Pulp (1972) Written and directed by Mike Hodges.
Michael Caine as Mickey King.
Mickey King (voiceover): The writer’s life would be ideal, but for the writing. That was the problem I had to overcome. Then I read in the Guiness Book of Records about Earle Stanley Gardner, the world’s fastest novelist who can dictate up to the rate of 10,000 words a day. That was for me. None of that romantic stuff with a typewriter. I had better uses for those two particular fingers.
