The 45 Year Old Roald Dahl
19 September 2003 | by The-Lonely-LondonerSee all my reviews

Roald Dahl never ceases to surprise me. Not only does he write short stories and adapt them for installments in 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents', he also wrote the screenplay for 'You Only Live Twice'. What a talented bloke. Obviously, all the energy that he applied to 'Man from the South' in Colliers magazine back in 1948 was brought to this television screenplay.
