Is Crowley still doing this? I had gotten the impression from some
conversation that he wasn't writing films, but had retired to spend time
with his daughters (one of whom, I also seem to recall, has a crippling
health problem). Am I completely off-base? 

If so, has he done any documentaries more recent than _The Gate of Heavenly
Peace_? I've read the script to that one, and quite liked it. I've actually
seen _The World of Tomorrow_, about the 1939-40 World's Fair, and it's
staggeringly brilliant, and very, very Crowley.
