A Case of Need/The Carey Treatment – Crichton Cast


Welcome, to the Crichton Cast! Steven and Eric are back to discuss another of Michael Crichton’s early works and it’s film adaptation!

This week, we go in-depth to discuss Crichton’s only novel released under his “medical drama” pseudonym; Jeffery Hudson. We’ll discuss the political implications of the source material and it’s impact in it’s time. We also talk about the writing style, the action, the dialog and more!

We then compare and contrast the 1968 novel to it’s 1972 film adaptation; The Carey Treatment! In some ways very true to the book, but in other ways very different. Listen to hear what we thought of the changes made, the cast, the action… everything!

If you’ve read the novel, seen the movie, or both, we’d love to hear your opinion too! Leave us a voice mail, post to us on Facebook or twitter, or send us an email!

If you are reading this you must be a fan of Michael Crichton just as we are. Whether you love the science in his writing, the adventurous places it takes you or just fell in love with dinosaurs on the big screen we will have something for you.

Every two weeks, in a mini-series format Steve and Eric will discuss a book of Michael Crichton’s which was made into a movie. Compare both mediums, discuss the good and bad, our takes on what worked and interesting facts. Listen in and discuss with us!
