I remember max howard wanting to change the name of the main character in "quest" to his niece's name! It changed so many times people lost track! Then of course, the WB marketing people had the artists change the short hair design of the lead character because studies showed "that little girl's don't buy dolls with short hair!" Or "producer (ha!) frank gladstone walking around all the time with a fucking puppet on his hand. Oh--and the so called "director" fred dachau. DON'T even get me started!!! It's all in the past now, but WB screwing up "Iron Giant" marketing just goes to show that even with great reviews, THEY JUST DON'T GET IT. Maybe it's the BEST thing in the world that Bob Daly and Terry Semel are leaving.
