I meant bogus only in the sense that the database required a date but an exact shooting date was not available. I am surprised that the set was left standing so long in these days where teardown begins about five minutes after "That's a wrap!" so that the next remake of a remake can get started.

Actually, Bill, what the movie says is "Based on a novel by Robert A. Heinlein" -- just watched the opening creds the other day. The novel goes unmentioned, perhaps for all the reasons you mentioned -- but also because DM is a movie for adults, and RSG is a book for boys.

Has anyone else here (other than our host) read the "Destination Moon" novella? The differences between it and the film script should be of interest, but (sadly) aren't... I suppose he simply needed a quick-and-easy paycheck at the time, because it's got to be the least inspired, most schematic writing ever published under Heinlein's name - just my opinion, of course.

Destination Moon was adapted into a comic book a couple of times.

Fawcett did a one-shot in 1950 (script by Otto Binder, art by Dick Rockwell and Sam Burlokoff), which was reprinted by Charlton in 1956 and again in 1958. DC Comics did a shorter version in Strange Adventures in 1950 (script by Gardner Fox and art by Curt Swan and John Fischetti).

Did Heinlein know about these? Was he involved in them? Did he condone them? Get paid for them? Care?
