I have a question concerning Pal's work that I hope Mr. Leibovit can shed some light on;<br /><br />The last movie produced by Pal was Doc Savage: Man of Bronze (1975). It was intended to be the first on a series, and Pal had reportedly bought the screen rights to all of the Savage novels.<br /><br />Doc Savage: Man Of Bronze ends with a cliffhanger, with Savage (Ron Ely) racing off into a dangerous situation. My question is: how did Pal intend to start the second proposed Savage movie? Would it continue from the closing scene in the previous film?<br /><br />Apologises if my question is too obscure, but there are some things you will never learn unless you ask.<br /><br />Cheers Lee.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
