Old, really old, announcements for A Princess of Mars from Disney.
I was cleaning out the archives and discovered some old issues The Gridley Wave. The Gridley Wave is an Olde World facebook page or website. It showed up in mail box ( a metal box attached to house ) once every few months. These printed wonders sometimes brought me the only news I caredto read back in the foggy year of 1990. You can see from these ancient texts that A Princess of Mars has been stewing and tossed out a few times by Disney. I can’t describe my delirium at these snippets of news and frustration with it’s further lack. These run from January 1990 to March 1991. I have later issues but there seems to be no further new coming a the time. I think I’d read about the potential casting of Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts. There’s a pretty good summery of 8o’s/90’s attempts here. I’ve placed my clippings in chronological and depressing order. I’ve that Bob Gale script, I think the only professional script I’ve thought was any good was Pogues’. Click the images to read each report and rejoice that we John Carter did finally reach the big screen 🙂 – Jeff
