I never knew that, thanks. I've really liked Thompson's books.
Kubrick also collaborated with Thompson on the screenplay to his next film, Paths of Glory
, although I've neither seen that one nor know how much credit can be given to Thompson.
The Killer Inside Me
is a terrific book, and probably the chief inspiration for Dexter
, but the most recent film adaptation was terrible. I haven't seen the version from the 70s.
