Hello Adolfo & Ken,

It seems you now are carrying the criticism to even higher
cultural levels:

I like that swipe at not only TP etc but Mr Ingemar B. the "Great
Film Director" too. He was a Nazi, you know, at least in his youth,
and his things in general, thogh perhaps clever, do have a nasty
Rightist stench about them. Quispelund's film manuscript roughly
would suit that director, I believe, but I don't have the contacts
necessary to forward the idea that he actually make something
out of it. And there's nobody here who could make a Marx Brothers
movie of it either. There thus is great risk that it will soon
be forgotten completely, together with Ingemar "Luis" himself.
