I want to run a simple Python script, but I keep getting bad interpreter.  I've tried this:

#!/usr/bin
python mypythonscript

...as well as this...
#!/usr/bin
python mypythonscript

...as well as this...

#!/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/bin/python
python mypythonscript

What am I missing?

Thanks
je

The shebang line is the first line in the script. It should be something like this:

#!/usr/bin/python

or this:

#!/usr/bin/env python
