    For the pilot "Lost in Space" (1965) {No Place to Hide (#1.0)}, actor Dawson Palmer was dressed in a fur suit to portray a giant monster. A doll of John Robinson in a jet-pack was held up by wires around Palmer's head and he was told to take swipes at it. This proved frustrating for Palmer as he was completely unable to see out of his suit. When filming stopped, Palmer angrily ripped off his suit and grabbed the doll, tearing it to pieces, screaming "There, you little bastard!" at it.

    Ed Shifres' book "Space Family Robinson: The True Story" precipitated the arrangement for writer/director Ib Melchior to be given screen credit in the Lost in Space movie produced by Prelude Pictures and distributed by New Line Cinema, and Melchior worked as special advisor to Mark W. Koch in the film because Melchior was the creator of the original "Space Family Robinson" (1960) - a screenplay, which became Irwin Allen's Lost in Space (1965) TV series. Melchior was never credited for the creation, until the details were exposed in Shifres' "Space Family Robinson: The True Story" (Windsor House - 1996) and re-published as "Lost in Space: The True Story" (Windsor House - 1998). The book was extremely controversial and earned Melchior a monetary settlement and recognition as the creator of what became Lost in Space. The book was critically acclaimed with excellent reviews from Hollywood notable writers. To satisfy Melchior, Prelude Pictures hired him as a consultant on their feature film adaptation. Melchior's contract also guaranteed him 2% of the producer's gross receipts, a provision that was later the subject of a suit between Melchior and Mark W. Koch of Prelude Pictures. Although an Appellate Court ruled partly in Melchior's favor, on November 17, 2004 [ironically the 40th anniversary to the exact month/day of the second revised shooting of the final Irwin Allen pilot script in 1964], the Supreme Court of California denied a petition by Melchior to further review the case.
