Yes, and knowing that the movie was coming, I went and re-read the story in a collection at the public library. Having seen the trailer for the movie two-three times, it would seem Hollywood has added all sorts of things that are not there. It's not that good a story, anyway, in my opinion, so they can't do much damage, I guess. Not that they could in any case; the story is still there.
If you see the movie, Roger, I'd be interested in your impression / assessment of it.And, Frank, speaking of stories, did you know that FSF once smacked down Ernie? Ernie never got over it, being all Ernie and all, IIRC. (I think "smack-down" applies to wrestling; but, here, I mean the real thing, BOXING.) How tall was FSF, anyway, I wonder?
And why do they call them "trailers" when they come BEFORE the movie is released? Maybe for the same reason a Mississippi boat that pushes barges ahead of it is called a "towboat"? When we wuz kids they were called "coming attractions," but we've progressed since then. (The fillums were called coming attractions, I mean, not the boats.)
