All this week here on Now I’ve Heard Everything, I’m showcasing vintage interviews with authors whose books were made into movies that we love.

Today, Michael Crichton talks about the real science — and the real ethical questions — behind his 1990 bestseller, “Jurassic Park.”

I had read some of Crichton’s books, and enjoyed the movie “The Andromeda Strain,” that was based on one of them, but I had never interviewed him, until November 1990 when “Jurassic Park” was published.

“Jurassic Park:” the movie was released in 1993, starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum.

Made on an estimated budget of 63-million dollars, “Jurassic Park” earned some one billion dollars worldwide.

Author Michael Crichton died in 2008 at age 66.
