Menzes’ direction worked really well. Ericb Vive la France! David Fullam Always wanted to see this one. roger h Sir Roger shouldn’t despair, Mr. Toad has got a lot of mileage out of being an aristocratic amphibian. Luke Blanchard I’ve long wanted to see this one too. The movie is based on a novel by the Swiss author Maurice Sandoz (a.k.a. Maurice-Yves Sandoz). German Wikipedia has a page on him, but the novel was apparently written in French. Rock Baker I saw The Maze once, many years ago, back when the Sci-Fi Channel was young and would actually show cool stuff like this. I can’t remember ever getting a real good look at the giant frog in the movie, but it looks pretty good in this photo. Man, I’d love to see this one again! I’m a Richard Carlson fan, so it’s going to happen! Ken Begg So who would win, this guy or The Fly? Rock Baker Put my money on the frog. Unless Glenn Manning is playing… sandra The original novel may have been written in French, but there was an English translation I remember reading. It had this neat drawing that was a frog if you looked at it right way up, but if you turned it upside down, it was the head of an old man. I thought the movie was surprisingly good. I wonder if they will remake it one of these days ?
