Your resorting to name calling and you say im being stupid and ignorant. Childish, does it really matter so much that you have to get that angry.
You really don't get it. I mean you fundamentally don't understand. Every direct quote the author uses is cited and referenced, because if an author uses direct quotes that a person did not actually say, then they can be immediately sued for libel, and no publisher would touch that book with a ten-foot pole. Bottom line: you can't publish a false quote and claim it's from him. It's illegal.

It's ironic you'd call me childish then follow up with this. I admitted I was mistaken and answered your question. The mature thing to do would be to acknowledge that and stop carrying on about it.

He might do it to strike at the world. He might do it because he wants to meet some new artistic vision or clean up the deacades worth of accumulated mess currently called continuity. Maybe its a money thing or some combination of it all. It doesn't matter.

What he can't do is kill the childhood dreams and story that resulted from his work back then. Regardless of if I buy into any new material. I guess, somewhere along the way in me it became my story rather than his and I can do with it what I want to, too. lol.
I agree with you on this. My key frustration has been his refusal to allow remastering and distribution of the original films, especially considering professional film historians have offered to do it for free to prevent loss of a core piece of cinematic history.
