I hear that in early drafts of Destination Moon Professor Phostle was to return as a villain out to buy a diamond for Rita Hayworth. I'm glad that idea was dropped - it just didn't make sense.

IIRC, this was a suggestion that someone made to Hergé. He tried using it, but dropped it when he just could not make it work.
