Credit for dancing in "Black Swan"

Inside Movies reports on the role of Sarah Lane in "Black Swan"; “Of the full body shots, I would say 5 percent are Natalie,” says Sarah Lane, 27, an American Ballet Theatre soloist who performed many of the film’s complicated dance sequences, allowing Portman’s face to be digitally grafted onto her body. “All the other shots are me.”

Of the misrepresentation angle: They wanted to create this idea in people’s minds that Natalie was some kind of prodigy or so gifted in dance and really worked so hard to make herself a ballerina in a year and a half for the movie, basically because of the Oscar,” says Lane.

In the current discussion on patent reform, the "first to file" proposal can be viewed as an effort to diminish the role of the true inventor.
