This Week's Reading (THE RELENTLESS MOON and CAKES AND ALE)
(book comments by Evelyn C. Leeper)
TOPIC: Films and Novelizations and Films and ... (comments by Mark
Last week Gary McGath suggested that since the film MOONRAKER was
not a faithful adaptation of Ian Fleming's novel, and so a
novelization had been written, therefore someone should film that >novelization, and then write a novelization of *that* film. This
is not unlike what happened with the "Living Dead" films, as I
wrote back in 1988 in my review of RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD II:
TOPIC: FORBIDDEN PLANET (letter of comment by Kip Williams)
In response to Dorothy J. Heydt's comments on the novelization of
FORBIDDEN PLANET in the 09/24/21 issue of the MT VOID, Kip Williams
The novelization isn't the only oddly recreated bit of FORBIDDEN
PLANET. When we lived in Houston around 1984, the comic shop I
went to had a stack of FORBIDDEN PLANET 45s. Since the movie had
no music track, these actually were "inspired by" the movie.
Fittingly, the store was named Third Planet.
Keeping to my lifelong tradition of letting things like that get
away without picking one up and learning more, I let it get away
without picking one up and learning more. [-kw]
