"That Magnificent Book of Humanity"
In the Beginning...
The Bible's Book of Genesis was a 1966 Dino DeLaurentiis film - directed by John Huston who cast himself as the voice of God - and as Noah.
The film consists of four main sections: Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah's Ark, and the story of Abraham. There are also a pair of shorter sections, one recounting the building of the Tower of Babel, and the other the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Also starring Richard Harris, Ava Gardner, George C. Scott, Peter O'Toole, Michael Parks, Ulla Bergryo and others.
2 years later, Dino produced Barbarella.
and now The Book of Genesis is an illustrated novel by R. Crumb ! Looks cool.
That's INFO-Tainment !
