      This was written in Middle English; I doubt any single word would have been pronounced as you’ve given it. Including “The”.

      More important, where are “Tintin,” and “The Watchmen?” Where is “Swamp Thing?” All the super-hero movies? “The Little Prince?” Surely comic books, graphic novels and fairy tales are strange inspiration for movies. And what about the 37 movies (and counting!) that claim to have been inspired by the “exploits” of Ed Gein?
