The September-October 2011 issue [Vol. 104, No.1] of The University of Chicago Magazine has a long, well-illustrated profile of Stan Friedman: “Science? Fiction?” It is on the web at magazine.uchicago.edu.
BULLETIN: A contract was signed in March, 2012, by Stellar Productions of Hollywood (Bryce Zabel and Don Most) for an option on the film rights for the book Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience by myself and Kathleen Marden, Betty’s niece. I was a consultant to Universal Studios on the Movie The UFO Incident starring James Earl Jones which was broadcast on NBC way back in 1975 and was based on John Fuller’s book The Interrupted Journey about Betty and Barney. The tentative title is Betty and Barney. Stellar also had optioned my book TOP SECRET/MAJIC along with Don Schmitt and Tom Carey’s Witness to Roswell. The screenplay for MAJIC MEN has been written. Now all that is needed is the money to produce it. It is expected to be a dynamic view of the research ups and downs on the Roswell Incident and the very important and controversial Majestic 12 documents. Sort of like a ufological version of All the President’s Men. I haven’t disagreed with those who have suggested that Richard Dreyfuss (born in 1947) play me (grin). Bryce directed the Dark Skies Series on TV a few years back and coauthored After Disclosure with Richard Dolan.
I also spoke for the first time in Warsaw, Poland, to the Polish UFO Society. The city has certainly been upgraded since I spoke at a conference there in the 1980s on Nuclear Methods in Agriculture. I also spoke again near Sao Paulo, Brazil, and for the first time in Saint John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, making it my 10th and final Canadian Lecture Province to go with all 50 U.S. States and, now, 18 foreign countries. There were also 3 trips to New Hampshire including speaking in Exeter in their annual conference and at the Shepherd-McAuliffe Space Center in Concord and the 50th anniversary celebration of the Betty and Barney Hill experience at Indian Head Resort. The response was so good, there will be another conference there September 14, 15, 16.
There were also excellent crowds at the Annual Roswell Festival and the MUFON Symposium and the huge Phoenix International UFO Conference (Open Minds) as well as at talks in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kansas, Michigan, Georgia, and Pennsylvania.
