Can't help you with the film but I've got Line up, as well as 317 E32nd transcribed, both prime examples of Lennie's absolute mastery of implied harmonically contrapuntal stretches. They're slightly difficult to play in tempo with the precise phrasing UNLESS you spent some time with Lennie developing the 3rd to 5th fingers to perform as a secondary thumb, fore, and middle finger. If THAT'S the case, get the music for Chopin's Piano Etudes, the opus 25, A-Minor etude. That deals with right hand quarter note chords, connected by ascending and descending 16th note chromatics played with the 3-4-5 fingers. Start slow. Baby steps. Chopin indicated a quarter = 144 tempo. Once you can play that in A minor, TRANSPOSE it to all other keys. If you can accomplish that in quarter = 120, nothing linear that Lennie ever played will prove to be beyond your technical capabilities.
