RARA-AVIS: Lionel White and Brando

From: Richard Moore ( moorich@aol.com)
Date: 12 Sep 2006

I checked the DVD, which I have but have yet to watch, and the White novel was THE SNATCHERS (1953). I bought the movie because of Boone not Brando and I will definitely move it up in the stack to be watched.

A followup question. I recall reading a piece by Westlake about crooks who used a Lionel White novel as a model for a crime and it worked beautifully until they ran out of book. If anyone else read this article, which I believe was reprinted in an MWA anthology, was the White novel THE SNATCHERS? The criminals following the novel in real life were not U.S. I have a whisp of a memory they were French.
