Oh. Now i'm confused. I thought it was about what one comes 
up with, looking at the title alone (instead of the content) 
- do i now really have to read the story each time? ;)
(though it's hard to NOT think of submarines if it would've 
been "20000 leagues under the sea"... ;) - but i'd not have 
associated India with "Moonstone"...

    Heh, no. I'm sure Stephen is holding his tongue in his cheek here... 
:o)

     Here's another one: "Before Adam" by Jack London, 1876-1916.

    Now, interpretate that title in any way that you want, Stills or Anims. 
I personally like this one, (even though I've only just seen it), and it 
sets your mind thinking about what it may have been like before Adam. But 
*who* is Adam?

      Here's another example: "The Doctors Dilemma" by Bernard Shaw, 
1856-1950. What 'Dilemma'? Who 'is' the Doctor?

        Set your mind alight...

"Before Adam"? Ouch. That just screams for trouble with 
Creationists ;) [well, actually, no - there are at least 
five days available before that, and you could depict "The 
Hiding Of The Dinosaur Skeletons" and apply for public 
funding ;)]

Funny, now somehow the image of a phone booth popped up in 
my mind... ;) it's weird how pre-made popular culture has 
gotten a hold on imagination. I guess i'll never be a "real" 
artist :)

P.S.: We're still "officially" going to use the "The Black 
Robe" title, are we?

I'm just a bystander for this process.  But my intent was that each of the
two responses were equally valid:

i) A key moment from the book (but hey, who's actually gonna bother to read
some of these obscure ones)?
ii) Whatever comes to mind from the words "The Black Robe."  Me, I'm thinkin
Vader.  Not that I'd actually use Lucasfilm characters.
