      Wow, really interesting to learn more about that scene from cape fear as being linked to the King James Bible. I found this cause I am a tattoo buff, but lots of interesting stuff. Thanks for writing!

      As description says: "Four centuries after its first printing, the King James Bible (1611) remains one of the most influential books in the English language." This version of the Bible, I particularly like, because of a wide variety of forms. My thanks go to Harry Ransom Center for their great desire and willingness. All the best, M.
