“What a load of crap!” howled Douglas Adams as he threw open the lobby doors of the Empire Leicester Square. He’d just sat through 109 minutes of Congo, a jungle adventure story about a trained gorilla that’s taken back to the wild. I caught up with him at the after party, in the basement of the Royal College of Art on Kensington Gore. He and Storm Thorgerson were standing next to a scale model of a volcano spewing day-glow lava from its top. “Sorry if I was a bit vocal back there at the theatre,” said Douglas. He was an imposing man, both in stature and imagination.

“No, you’re right,” I laughed, “the movie stank. I’m amazed you stayed until the end. But we did well out of it. The studio paid us for our radar image (even though it was in the public domain), used our literature in their set designs, and gave us the London premiere, which really boosted morale at the charity. Besides, the gorillas stand to earn a pile of dough from the on-pack video promotion, so…”

“So it’s good for something,” said Storm.
