Wow, it really stunk up the place this weekend. I had to bunker down more than usual. While the fire department’s investigation found that the fire was “accidentally” caused by a blowtorch, around these parts our resident studio veteran has his suspicions. He has it good authority that Universal’s sinisterly similar backlot fire round about ten years ago was intentionally set to get rid of decaying sets… for a duplicitous profit.
I can definitely believe that but in this instance, was it a similar case of alleged insurance fraud? I want to believe that they wouldn’t torch a vault of 70,000 items, the King Kong experience AND Hill Valley.
