The screen writer for "Robinson Crusoe On Mars" has passed away.

Ib Melchoir has died at the age of 97 from natural causes.

Melchoir wrote the screenplays for many of my favorite films including "Angry Red Planet", "Journey To The Seventh Planet", "Reptilicus", "Time Travelers", "Robinson Crusoe On Mars", the English language version of "Planet of the Vampires" as well as the story "The Racer" on which the film "Death Race 2000" was based.

He also wrote a few episodes of TV shows including "Man Into Space", "Outer Limits" and "13 Demon Street". His frist screenplay was for the film "Live Fast Die Young" back in 1958.
