Trivia that mentions this person:
Muppet Treasure Island [1996]
  • In the original script, Polly Lobster's role was played by a sultry female parrot who flirted with Silver (a similar character had been used in a sketch of [The Muppet Show] starring John Cleese as a pirate). When this got "too weird", according to Brian Henson, she was replaced with a male parrot named Stevenson (after Robert Louis Stevenson) who pointed out the changes made from book to movie. Stevenson was replaced by Polly Lobster for the film, but later showed up in the PC game based on the film.
    The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen [2003]
  • The film's literary characters are Allan Quatermain, introduced in [?] H. Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines; Mina Harker from [?] Bram Stoker's Dracula; Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde from Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; Rodney Skinner, who replaced Griffin from H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man (due to rights issues, and the character in the comic was given the name Hawley Griffin as the original novel gave no first name); Captain Nemo from [?] Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Mysterious Island; Dorian Gray from [?] Oscar Wilde's The Picture Of Dorian Gray; Tom Sawyer from [?] Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequels; Ishmael from [?] Herman Melville's Moby Dick; and Professor James Moriarty from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Final Problem, one of the [Sherlock Holmes] stories. The Fantom's mask design alludes to [?] Gaston Leroux's The Phantom Of The Opera. British Intelligence chief "M" alludes to Casino Royale by Ian Fleming as does Campion Bond, a character from the script (who never made it into the movie), who is supposed to be the grandfather of James Bond.
