On page 130 of the Italian book La Penna più Veloce del West (The Fastest Pen Of The West) you can read how the lawyer of Bill Kaysing feared for his life and resigned. It had to do with the law suit, Bill Kaysing started against Universal Films and director Peter Hyams about the film Capricorn One . Here is the translation of what is written in the biography of Bill Kaysing. (ISBN: 978-960-93-5531-5) from The fastest pen of the West biography of Bill Kaysing by Albino Galuppini In 1977, Ruth and Bill bought a caravan in Las Vegas for the sole purpose of being a mobile office for developing a screenplay inspired by the book We Never Went To The Moon. For this purpose, the Eden Press, which had published the first edition of the text, hired screenwriter Ken Rotcop, entrusting him with the task. They all worked hard, assisted by Bill Butters, who felt certain of being able to be funded in the project by Sir Lew Grade, a famous Ukrainian born, London based film producer. There was no doubt, however, that their initiative was closely watched by unknown entities. Randy Reid, co-author of the first edition and printer of the book, said that their correspondence was monitored. Such ectoplasmic forces did not wait long to materialize, implementing clever countermoves.Lew Grade did not give his support to financing the film. In that precise period, producer Paul Lazarus, with director Peter Hyams, produced a movie whose plot traced, in a stunning way their screenplay. With the only expedient that the simulation of space travel took place on Mars instead of on the Moon. Hyams film was titled Capricorn One and counts among its protagonists famous actors including OJ Simpson, Elliott Gould, James Brolin and Brenda Vaccaro. The movie premiered in 1978, achieving some success, and then disappeared from circulation. However it had obtained its purpose: to beat to the punch their idea and film project.The writer then filed a lawsuit against Universal Films and director Peter Hyams, unsuccessfully, at a court in Beverly Hills for copyright infringement. According to the thesis proposed by his lawyer, the script was largely borrowed from the book on the lunar plot and identified 16 elements in the film that violated copyright. A private investigator, hired by the legal office in support of the suit made a shocking discovery. In Washington, someone in connection with the script had falsified the date of filing for copyright in the office in charge. The lawyer, impressed by the fact, gave the mandate saying:Bill, I have a wife and two boys, I do not want to oppose people so powerful as to be able to alter the filing date at a patent office.Bill realized in that moment that for many common people, including his attorney, their physical integrity and that of their families are the priority. But he did not fall into despair: That which endures, is victorious. From Richard D Hall I think the story of WHY it was made is very believable. They were basically STEALING Bill Kaysings story about the moon landings and just made one or two changes. They changed the date on their copyright for the film to pre-cede Kaysings and voila they could stop Kaysing making his film on copyright grounds. It also puts out the message that it would be too difficult to fake and the astronauts would be heros and blow the whistle. I cannot see the arrogant American military industrial complex / Hollywood agreeing to make a film where America is so devious, their films always show themselves as whiter than white. The ONLY reason that seems plausible for making the film is to discredit Kaysing. Which makes it even more compelling that the moon landings were faked. It’s incredible when you think about it. That they would commission a multi million dollar film like this AND break the law regarding the copyright JUST to perpetuate the cover up. It just shows how subtle their propaganda is.
