Revisiting the OTHER Spirit Movie






Hmmm....Whilst I hesitate to make a judgement about a film without seeing it, THE SPIRIT is garnering negative (and that's probably too polite a word) reviews out the proverbial wazoo. The gist of bloggy buddy Lisa's review was, "Don't go!" (http://lisa-mynx.blogspot.com/2008/12/my-review-of-spirit.html) Makes me think the late Mr Eisner (whom I ironically met on the day he gave Frank Miller an Eisner award many years back!) might be revisting the 1987 TV pilot in his afterlife and thinking maybe it wasn't so bad after all. Here's some more screen grabs from it. Also, here--http://www.samjjones.com/--is a link to the official site of its star, FLASH GORDON's Sam J Jones. There you can get signed SPIRIT photos such as the one seen at the top here!

Hey, I have not-bad memories of The
Spirit tv-movie. At least it made
an attempt at the charm and fun of
the Eisner strip without so obviously going over the top!
