Robbie and I juggled schedules so we were both free at the same time to see Hitchhiker

  1. Yes, that was Douglas’s face at the end of the film, and yes, I did cry when I saw it. Along with that, the answering machine for Magrethea was played by the actor who played Arthur in the BBC show, and, when Arthur/Ford/Zaphoid were at the Vogon waiting line, one of the characters was the Marvin suit for the BBC show. Supposedly some (if not all) of the extras that were on the line were from the BBC show or were mentioned in one of the stories, but I didn’t recognize anyone other than Marvin.

  2. Ooo. I was planning on giving the movie version a pass. But you liked it… cool. Haven’t really been budgeting to see movies lately, but I’m a fan of the radio play (which I got on a vinyl record when I was in junior high) and the novel.
