k2k magazine, i think, interviewing Beverly Gray.
"Beverly Gray: I had actually participated in some of that fake publicity and thought it was really amusing. I was told, early on, to go out and find... invent some project that sounded good and they'd put it in the trades. So, with my literary background, I came up with - Orson Welles was going to star for Roger Corman in Melville's "The Confidence Man." This was duly published in the trades. I have a copy of it. It was pretty neat, especially because I knew that this was an absolutely unfilmable book. There was no possible way they could make it into a movie. You couldn't make any kind of movie out of that book."
well, harvey, don't know what to tell ya. the people just don't say too much about anything anymore
