...since I'm on the Digest option, someone else may well have posted this; but if not, speaking (as we were) of films-made-from-hb-novels, something to look forward to.

Or not.

IIRC, "Jersey Films" is Danny DeVito, right? Wonder if he'll have a bit part.....

         Burnt Bones (1999) may not be Slade's best but it does have 
interesting moments. In one of them, the lead investigator, Mountie 
Superintendent Robet DeClercq thinks about a comment attributed to Erle 
Stanley Gardner regarding the author's pulp career; Gardner was known for 
killing off the final heavies with the last bullet in the hero's gun, which 
led some editors to tease him about the good guys being bad shots. Gardner 
said "At three cents a word, every time I say 'Bang' in the story I get 
three cents. If you think I'm going to finish the gun battle while my hero 
still has fifteen cents worth of unexploded ammunition in his gun, you're 
nuts."  [cited on fictionmags]
