A FLASH OF GREEN. by John D. MacDonald. BUY NOW FROM. AMAZON BARNES & NOBLE GET WEEKLY BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS: Email Address Subscribe Tweet. KIRKUS REVIEW. A housing development's plan to fill in the bay of a Florida small town brings aroused action, not only on the part of home-with-a-view owners, nature lovers, and do-gooders, but also Kat.   Viggo reveals that he's nervous, talks about his Best Actor Oscar nomination for Green Book, taking on a Brooklyn accent for the role, eating a meal with Ton.

A Flash of Green (Book): MacDonald, John D.: The opportunists have taken over Palm City. Silent and deadly, like the snakes that infest the nearby swamps, they lay hidden from view, waiting for the right moment to strike. Political subterfuge has already eased the residents toward selling out. All that's left now is to silence a few stubborn holdouts.   The flashes of green and even blue light last only seconds. They are due to the bending of light in the atmosphere. It's a visual too brilliant to ignore: as the sun pierces the horizon, either at.

For those of you not familiar with A FLASH OF GREEN, it's based on the book by John D. MacDonald about a newspaper reporter involved with greed, corruption and environmental plunder -- the eternal Florida themes -- in a town much like Fort Myers. Directed by Ed Nachtrieb. With Eric Boardman, Dan Wheetman. After being wounded by the first explosions at Pearl Harbor, Charles McCandless fought in the most critical battles against Imperial Japan in World War II. Midway, Guadalcanal, Peleliu, and Iwo Jima, to name a few. When he got home, like many veterans, he never talked about it. When Sandra McCandless Simons first read her father's.

"A Flash of Green" is based on a novel by John D. MacDonald, and like a lot of his stories, it seems to be about the plot but is really about the characters.

We start with a story about saving an unspoiled bay from greedy developers, and we end with a story about a man trying to save himself from his own greed. It's a relief, halfway through the movie, to realize it's not going to be about how.
