Transcript syncratic style may seem most at home on the written page, his works have been transmuted into every other possible medium: radio, television (quite feebly, on Night Gallery), comic books (by Marvel, Warren, and the underground Skull Comix), and just lately into the legitimate theatre, with an operatic adaptation of The Case of Charles Dexter Ward being done, by England's National Theatre, the people who brought you the nine-hour-long Iliuminatus! play. And of course, there are the films. Let us consider the man behind them for a moment. When H. P. Lovecraft died in 1937, he was only 47 years old. As much as we associate him with the past -- with the pulps that have become part of our history, with his longings for even earlier times -- it is an odd thing to contemplate, but if it were not for his fatal illness, it would not have been at all strange for Lovecraft to have lived on another thirty or forty years . . . right through the turbulent, decadent (or so he would say) '60s. One can only wonder: what would these films have been like . . . with original Lovecraft scripts, with his hand on the special effects. But failing that, we have a fair selection of others' adaptations of his work. Special Features Command Performances: on occasion, a much-in-demand film is missed by congoers, whether because of time considerations, other programming items, or the all-important partying. To take some of the pressure from this problem, when not specifically forbidden by our contract with the film library involved we will be running repeats of some of the film programming items as command performances. Posted by both of the updated schedules outside the film room and by the registration table will be a .pad of paper and a ballot box. Just write the title(s) of the film(s) you'd like to see repeated and the night (if any one in particular) that would be best for you, and we'll rerun as many films as are demanded at the end of the scheduled film programming. The balloting will be polled daily, and repeats will be listed on each day's schedule update. The Exact Difference: To demonstrate how a work can be changed between print and screen, we are closing this series with a special demonstration. A panel of orators will do readings from stfnal novels-that have been remade as motion pictures, each selection immediately followed by the same scene as it appeared in the movies. This promises to be one of the unique events of the cor vention. The Fannish Top Ten: Early th year, we polled a multitude of fans an compiled the fannish all-time top te: favorite films. Unfortunately, due t budgetary considerations numbers on and three, Cabaret and Fantasia, wer unobtainable; 2001, the number-twi spot, is still up in the air. But we wi] have the other seven, intersperse throughout the program. Look for then on the updated film schedule. They are in order of voting: Phantom of the Pan dise, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Dar Star, the Wizard of Oz, Rocky Horro Picture Show, King Kong, and Case b lane a. Film Premieres: Two films wi] have -their first public showings at Iggy The first is Avco Embassy's release o Watership Down, an animated adaptatioi of Richard Adams' bestselling fantas novel. The second, we say with a straigh face, is Vampire Hookers, a little numbe starring Keith Carradine. Arrangement for the showing of Watership Down an still very much up in the air, though tht Symphony Hall has been discussed as possible site. And Vampire Hookers wil be interpolated somewhere in the regula programming. Check schedules and an nouncements for both. 86 FOUR SIGMA SOCIETY The Four Sigma Society is an association of persons with tested intelligence four or more standard deviation units above the mean of the general population. On the widely-known Stanford-Binet scale, this corresponds to an I.Q. of 164 or higher. Approximately one person in thirty thousand meets this standard. Entrance to the society is by means of the Langdon Adult Intelligence Test, an examination designed to differentiate at very high intelligence levels. The LATT is a test of power of attention, not of speed or special knowledge, and is unsupervised and untimed. The Four Sigma Society does not accept scores on any standard test. A few existing tests have enough ceiling theoretically, but they do not discriminate adequately at the four sigma level of the adult population. Purposes of the society include fellowship and communication among intellectual peers, the identification of intellectually challenging questions and cooperative efforts toward an understanding of man and the universe, systematic sharing of the task of monitoring new information in all fields of study, insight into and cooperation in dealing with the special problems attendant upon extreme intelligence, and the identification and fostering of the intellectual and personal development of highly gifted children. Additionally, the monthly journal and other resources of the society are available to individual members for the promotion of projects and ideas of interest to them and for the furtherance of their individual aims. Interested persons may obtain the LATT by writing to the society at P.O. Box 795, Berkeley, Calif. 94701, enclosing a check or money order for $5, payable to the Four Sigma Society. No other form of application is necessary. Everyone attempting the test will be mailed a score report listing his raw score and the I.Q. and percentile scores derived therefrom. 3 33 Tiaffumajhe., TC &rrito9 Ca. faurU'i I «« The 2nd Annual Darkover Grand Council Meeting will be held in mid July, 1979, with MARION ZIMMER BRADLEY as Guest of Honor.
