I am curious to know how the granting of rights works in a case like this. ALW says Hooper did not want anyone involved with the movie who was involved with the stage show. Obviously that does not include ALW since ALW was at least involved enough to write a new song. And, for example, did Hooper need ALW's (or someone else's ) permission to use the London version of Mungojerrie...or did the studio's purchase of the flim rights mean they could take anything they wanted from any version carte blanche?

I know film is notoriously a director's medium, while theatre is often an author's medium. Who did the studio actually get the rigths from? ALW alone, or ALW and the Elliott estate, or is Cameron Mackintosh also in the mix as original producer? Do the authors then have zero say in what is created?
