This story was Ray Bradbury's revenge on John Huston, the legendary director who hired him to write the screenplay of "Moby Dick" in the early 1950s. Bradbury admired Huston more than any other American film-maker, but, when they met, the two men seemed to have nothing in common and Bradbury (like others before and after him) seemed to bring out the diabolical-prankster side of Huston's complex nature. Bradbury found him an alarming and unlikeable man - they even engaged in fisticuffs once - and the depiction here of "John Hampton", a Hollywood director living in Ireland, is unmissably a savage caricature of Huston. Peter O'Toole has a high old time as the sadistic director doing his damnedest to scare his scriptwriter - and succeeding.
