You are sure right on that. There is little I can think of that would shock our B'way theater goers. Usually though, body stockings are used to suggest nudity on stage here in big productions. All Tinindril will need is a green body stocking along with a matching wig and makeup for here face and hands.

As for the musical part, Sven has already posted a few lyrics from a Perelandra opera.

I would enjoy the sort of hokey special effects seen on the BBC's Doctor Who? series rather than modern CGI eye candy. There would be less focus on the style of the Space Trilogy stories and more on their substance. THS would certainly be a tough story to translate to the big screen, especially here in the USA.

A film would by definition either entail the film being longer than usual, or having stuff cut out.

In my mind I can equate THS with carre's Tinker Tailor... Action is minimal, and most of the story concerns conversations and interpretations of events. It works as the 6 part BBC series (to an excellent degree), but a film would loose the.. subtelty.

Justy the opinion of a late night befuddled brain

Yes, it could be a great metaphysical thriller. But would your rather see it set in the post WWII period or in our modern world? Personaly I think an alternate 20th Century would be the only practical way to be faithful to Lewis' book.

Many folks these days would interpret THS as a warning about the "New World Order" or what some right wingers call "Progressives". I think C.S. Lewis was warning us about real demonic powers rather than mundane human conspiracies.

You could probably get around the nudity issue (always assuming you could find someone to make the movie who would do it without exploiting that angle) much more easily, I think, than you would be able to deal with the fact that there is very little visible action in "Perelandra." Most of the conflict is within the characters even though there is a great physical battle. It is the sort of story that is very moving to read but would most likely fall flat when you tried to translate it to a purely visual format where the inner struggles cannot be portrayed. I suspect that a movie would focus on the physical and exclude the inner struggle which would completely lose the intent of the book.
I agree. But you could make a movie out of That Hideous Strength probably and mention Perelandra in it
