posts on 5/15/2006 12:27:47 PM Hi- I am wondering who owns the copyright to The Blue Man by Kin Platt? Is it his family, or is it now public domain? thanks! Lauren
Chris Platt posts on 9/14/2005 1:57:57 PM 9/14/05 I'm replying to a post by Cattalyna on 7/31/2005, who asked whether Kin Platt's The Boy Who Could Make Himself Disappear was ever made into a movie. I'm Kin Platt's son, and I can say, YES, it was -- a really miserable movie called Baxter. It came out in 1972, starring Patricia Neal , Jean-Pierre Cassel , Britt Eklund , Lynn Carlin , Scott Jacoby and Sally Thomsett . Patricia Neal was the only good thing about this movie. Britt Eklund was fun to look at. The movie didn't have much to do with the book, sad-to-say, unlike what my father was promised by the producers. None of my late father's other 34 published books have yet been made into movies, although I'm working on that -- and I'd like to remake "The Boy," too!
Cattalyna posts on 7/31/2005 4:39:01 PM Hello! I recently found my old copy of the boy who could make himself disappear, and I remembered that they were going to make a movie based on it. does anyone know if they ever did? I can't find anything about the book online, much less a movie.
