Re: "Planet of the Titans" Revisited

^^^If this Chris Bryant quote from "The Greatest Sc-Fi Movies Never Made" is correct, Kaufman would've been happy to lose the Shat: "Roddenberry kept wanting a big extended Star Trek episode, while Kaufman kept sloping in and saying, 'Well, can't you kill off all these television actors in the first reel so we can start having a proper movie?'" I'm sure he was paraphrasing, but I suspect the sentiment was there.
