Which makes me...(taps furiously on adding machine for several moments)... ancient.
(The one I’ve rewatched most often is probably The Golden Voyage of Sinbad -- not something you’d think of in this context but the pacing and character development in that screenplay has some unexpected and enlightening similarities to Clemens’ work on The Avengers. Well-structured writing is well-structured writing, no matter the genre.)
Among his other script credits was the very first episode of Danger Man (a.k.a. Secret Agent in the States) which in an interesting coincidence involved location filming at a place called Portmeirion, a location Patrick McGoohan remembered a few years later when he was developing his next series. So Clemens was indirectly connected to the birth of The Prisoner as well.
I find it interesting that no one ever says they themselves would be offended by a black Sue Storm as love interest for a white Reed Richards, but many people argue that the studio couldn't have done this because other people would be offended by it. Note also in the comments the suggestion that Southerners are the ones who would be offended...because apparently in the American South, it's still 1964.
I will say that the Corman and Story films were pretty much classic Fantastic Four. Undoubtedly, they didn't "nail" the FF or Doc Doom in any of those but if I wanted to play devil's advocate I could say that after three semi-disappointments I can kind of understand why Fox would want to take things in a different direction.
Am I happy about that? No. But if I'm being honest, I can at least understand it.
There isn't much question that Selma missed the mark in portraying LBJ.
