    In your article "Hell Upside Down: The Making of The Poseidon Adventure" you write, "The film is very similar to the novel, except that several characters were excised from the book when the screenplay was written. There was a character named Susan Shelby who was raped, a relative (Robin Shelby) who dies, and a Reverend Scott who commits suicide." Yes, there are characters that were removed from the story for the film, but the three you mention were most definitely in the movie. Susan was played by Pamela Sue Martin, Robin was played by Eric Shea, and the priest you mention was played by Gene Hackman. Robin and Susan's parents were not in the movie and a playboy named Huey was replaced in the story as Nonnie's love interest by Martin, played by Red Buttons, who is also in the book but becomes a composite of both characters.

    I'm a retired rocket scientist and the 'space consultant' for NBC News. I'm researching the life of astronaut Gordon Cooper, and I want to ask about this quotation you attribute to him at http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=7977

    section: UFO'S, The Controversial Phenomenon

    "Intelligent beings from other planets regularly visit our world in an effort to enter into contact with us...NASA and the American government know this and possess a great deal of evidence. Nevertheless, they remain silent in order not to alarm people...I am dedicated to forcing the authorities to end their silence." — Gordon Cooper, astronaut, at a UFO conference.

    Now, I've been shown letters that indicate that Colonel Cooper has denounced this quotation as bogus, and even [in 1977 or so] filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles against Columbia Pictures to prevent its use in promotional materials.

    What about the source of that quote & about resolution of the lawsuit?

    Dear Robert Siegel,

    Could you create "The Silver Screen" article about
    Disney's 1973 animated movie "Robin Hood"?

    Excellent article on Cinerama! Being from Seattle (I was born here), I think it important to note that the Seattle Cinerama theater is the only existing Super Cinerama facility. Thanks!

    OK man, I liked the Titanic writeup, but PLEASE turn on spell check. I count 5 typos and several grammar errors in the last paragraph. Spell check is your FRIEND!

    Regarding The Aristocats Score, while you gave 3 or 4 paragraphs regarding the Sherman Brothers 3 songs in the film, you completely ignored the composers of the most famous song in the film "EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE A CAT" Floyd Huddleston and Al Rinker...

    Robert,

    In your lastest "Silver Screen" about The Aristocats, you mention that Disney's Flowers and Trees was released in 1931, a year after the Skeleton Dance. Doing a little research shows that Flowers and Trees was actually released in 1932, three years after the Skeleton Dance was released in 1929.

    Your "Silver Screen" articles are always great reads.

    Thanks,

    Alan LeFever
