Quote of the Day: Larry McMurtry on Hollywood's Comic Book Fad (foretold in 1987)

"An industry that seems to have concluded that its best hope is to dramatize the comic-strip literature of an earlier and more vigorous era is one whose fevers have finally destroyed its nerve. With rare exceptions the pictures coming out of Hollywood today are the last resorts of the gutless."

--Larry McMurtry, foreward to "Film Flam: Essays on Hollywood" (Simon and Schuster, 1987).
