perhaps the cinema audience ought to be advised to read PD
Well perhaps the film-makers should make a film of PD or ML in the first place, if they want some violence. And at least the violence, or 'off-stage' violence in ML, was put there by Ransome - that is my point. But I simply do not buy this idea that people will only go to the cinema if there is a shoot-up, or a car chase or whatever in the film.
However, there is a ray of hope here. The makers of the new SA film will have had to get a licence of the IP rights from the Ransome Estate. Whilst the AR Lit Execs have a duty to maximise Estate income, they will also be alert to safeguard AR's reputation and heritage. The film company will not have been given complete carte blanche. Perhaps Geraint might comment, if he is reading this?
