Did You Know?


Popular "sci-fi" author and pulp fiction fan Philip Jose Farmer wrote a book entitled "Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life", a biography of "the man of bronze". In it, he theorized that Clark Savage, Sr. (the father of Doc Savage) was James Clarke Wildman, who appeared in the Sherlock Holmes story "The Adventure of the Priory School". Farmer wrote an unused script for a sequel to "Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze" entitled "Doc Savage: Archenemy of Evil", in which Holmes himself made an appearance, commenting on Savage as the greatest student of deduction he ever had and referencing his encounter with Savage's father. It remains unknown whom Farmer wanted for this role. See more »

Doc: Before we go... let us remember our code. Let us strive every moment of our lives to make ourselves better and better to the best of our ability so that all may profit by it.

We shall not see its like again
10 April 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

We so often talk of cinema landmarks - Kane, The Godfather, A Bout de Souffle. One film however is too often overlooked by "serious" film critics. I am talking of course about the classic Doc Savage (M.o.B.)

This film is not only exciting but also seriously explores the issue of exploitation of the developing nations by US imperialism. Not to mention kung-fu.

It also possessed the greatest soundtrack in film history (until of course Queen's breathtaking work on Flash Gordon). Although a bit of a rarity, this film is well worth seeking out - it will repay the effort of your search ten-fold.
