    There has been no shortage of documentary films made about Hubbard over the years but I find it really odd that a full blown documentary about his entire career (also known as a 'biopic' I believe) has yet to be made. Why is this I wonder? I'm absolutely certain that it would make millions at the 'box-office'.

    The show would be filled with what he DID NOT DO, DID NOT DISCOVER, DID NOT ACCOMPLISH, DID NOT SAVE.... who would pay good money to see a fraud do nothing. Oh... yea the ScioBots would... OOoooops!

    C'mon Miss Ellie, love him or loathe him (and I loathe him) his story is astonishing, utterly fascinating. If I had the money I'd start work on the film tomorrow, and I'm sure that given the right publicity it would be a sell-out.

    Haven't we had enough of his life story with all the events we HAD TO endure every year? Enforced Ron mag purchases, crappy calendars year after year?

    Watching a film of DM behind the scenes coup, abuse, crimes and TC parties, that one I'd stand in line for.
