Who Goes There? vs THE THING 1982


From John W. Campbell’s “Who Goes There?”

     “Moving from the smoke-blued background, McReady was a figure from some forgotten myth, a looming, bronze  statue that held life, and walked.”

from the screenplay THE THING by Bill Lancaster

MacReady takes a sip of his drink; makes his way over to his electronic chess game. A large Mexican sombrero hangs on his back. He is tall; about thirty-two.”

He’s pretty much Doc Savage in the original story.
