I once read a book called The Scarecrow. It was written in Autumn '68 with characters Anisina, Arnold Layne, Vera, and various dogs and pigs....
A bit of a comedy, there were 3 characters marooned on an island and one suffered brain damage. In chapter 24, as they were gathering apples and oranges along the beach, Vera asked Arnold if he liked green or red apples, to which he replied "any colour you like". The ebb and flow of the ocean set the love scene for them. Anisina would just ignore them and constantly used the phrase "biding my time" until they could get off that island of crumbling land. Arnold would sometimes stare off into the ocean and ask Vera is there anybody out there. She would reply "one of these days". Towards the end of the book, Anisina, hopeless, wished to breathe no more. But just when she was to say "Goodbye cruel world", she seen a ship in the distance ! Coming back to life, she screamed to the others to run like hell to the shore !
They got the attention of Corporal Clegg who sent small vessels out to rescue them, and that's when the party sequence began.
They're now talking about filming this story for yet another movie.
