            I didn't know he did the '70s version of The Crazies.

            I did know that he was a CMU grad.

              He was a good Joker, even though he wouldn't shave off his mustache.

                  He was good. I wouldn't call him a Cesar.

                    He was my main influence for my first book. I think he was a genius.

                          I heard on the radio something interesting about Night Of The Living Dead.

                          The way I understand it they were going to call it Night Of The Flesh Eaters and the copyright was on the title. They changed the title at the last minute and forgot to put the copyright symbol back on it. The film became public domain instantly. He was never able to get any royalties and anybody could put it on film or later video tape and DVD.

                            Actually it was Night if the Living Dead, and the distibuter forgot to change it. I can't remember the name issue though. You were close. And because of that, filmmakers and writers (like myself) were able to use common tropes - like needing destroy the brain to kill it - and not have any possible legal ramifications.

                            Dude still made a shit ton. Dawn of the Dead is the best zombie movie ever made in my opinion.
