The latest plagiarism lawsuit takes aim at the Oscar-winning "Driving Miss Daisy." New York writer Henry Denker claims the play and movie "copied, in substantial part," his novel and stage play "Horowitz and Mrs. Washington," copyrighted in 1979 and 1980.

Denker seeks all profits from "Driving Miss Daisy," which grossed more than $106 million.A spokesman for producer Richard Zanuck, however, called the suit "preposterous. Alfred Uhry wrote (`Driving Miss Daisy') about his grandmother and her chauffeur, and I don't understand how anyone can make any connection between the two plays."
