I kind of think of the scott/bryant thing as the raw material, like what they gave Welles before he directed TOUCH OF EVIL. Kaufmann has a tendency to rewrite anyway...
Exactly. First draft script are, almost invariably, crap.

...and his stated intent to explore mythology, and his referring to Olaf Stapledon...
To which reference are you referring?

As for the influence, I hadn't heard of the jet, but that is the kind of thing that would appeal to Ken Adam. However I've never seen Adam reference that plane either. maybe when we get the new Adam book, it'll resolve itself (hope hope.)
As to the Adam book, I have it on order! Drooooool!
