Well, thanks for your last bit, Peter. But I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it, nevertheless. You're certainly right in that I was one who declared early on my intentions to not see it, however -- I just couldn't see how train chases and spies and aeroplanes could possibly play any part in S&A.

The book is the book, and it is what it is. Making a film from it by condensing and abridging material as deemed useful is one thing -- wilfully adding spurious material for whatever reason is something else altogether (and also is something up with which I steadfastly refuse to put).
