In doing the research for Jonathan Livingston Seagull for my post about having a climbing breakthrough, I saw a lot of stuff that I already knew and stuff I didn’t know.
For example, I knew that there was a movie. Here, watch the trailer:
But I *DIDN’T* know that Richard Bach asked that the movie contain a disclaimer saying that Bach disapproved of the final cut.
I knew that Neil Diamond did the soundtrack for the movie, but I didn’t know that the soundtrack made more money than the movie did:
I knew that Richard Bach was the voice behind the audio book for Jonathan Livingston Seagull:
But I *DIDN’T* know that the first version of the audio book was read by Richard Harris Himself:
The Wikipedia says that the audiobook LP was the only format for Richard Harris’s reading and the subsequent ones were read by Bach. It doesn’t mention whether there were rights problems or if Bach listened to Richard Harris and said “I can top that.”
So that’s the audio book that I’m listening to this morning.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
