that Britt Ekland is summit

Well yes, but in the original she insisted on using an arse-double because she thought her own trumper wasn't up to scratch.

But Dave's Wife (and Dave has a really interesting job), why the need to constantly relocate stories to the USA? I'd be interested to hear why from someone in the biz!

In the case of the Wicker Man, the story is set in an isolated community that has a very long unbroken indiginous pagan tradtion - perhaps. As all the communities with long unbroken pagan traditions in the states all exist on reservations these days why not leave the story in Scotland, where it was orginally set? Not that this is always a bad idea - but why the obsession with it?

I have to think Pulp Fiction would not have had the same if it was set in Macclesfield. Instead of Jack Ribbit Slim's it would be McDonalds drive through near Curry's.
