Transcript QUATERMASS & THE PIT (Rudolph Cartier, 1958) The excellent BBC production of Nigel Kneale's screenplay. Prehistoric aliens are awakened by the Professor to once again threaten humanity. Many in the current generation of British sf fans used to be sent to bed by their parents when this was originally shown, but crept downstairs to listen outside the door. Now they can get the pictures as well and some of them are pretty spooky. Andre Morell plays Quatermass and a big hole plays The Pit. (shown in 2 two-hour sessions of 3 episodes each). JUBILEE (Derek Jarman, 1978) Possibly not one for juniors. Queen Elizabeth I, played by Jenny Runacre, is transported to a punk future of yet more sex, drugs and rock and roll. With Wayne County, Adam Ant, Little Nell and the Slits. (104 mins). DARK STAR ( John Carpenter, 1974) Dan O'Bannon co-wrote this with John Carpenter and also did the original treatment for Alien. There are similarities in the plot, but while Alien is a one-note exercise in horror, Dark Star amusingly satirizes lots of sf cliches as well as creating a unique mood of its own. As true to the spirit of sf as Kelly Freas drawings in old Astoundings. (90 mins). SPACE MOVIE ( Tony Palmer, 1979) An enthralling montage of NASA footage, 9 0% never previously released. Shown only once before on tv during a less-than- prime viewing time. Music by Mike Oldfield. THE THING ( Christian Nyby, 1951) The hand of Howard Hawks was involved in much of the direction of this fast moving horror version of John Campbell jnr's 'Who Goes There?'. It strongly influenced subsequent sf movies during the 1950s and even Alien owes it a debt. Scripted by Charles Lederer and starring Kenneth Tobey, Margaret Sheridan and Robert Cornthwaite. The Thing itself ( an intelligent vegetable from outer space) is played by James Arness. (87 mins) THE PEOPLE THAT TIME FORGOT (Kevin Connor, 1977) One of the best in the series of fantasy films produced by John Dark. The production design occasionally gives one the impression of a series of Frazetta illustrations come to life. Another asset is Dana Gillespie and her costume. (We hope to have Ms Gillespie at the convention but without her costume, unfortunately... that is, I mean...) (90 mins). 18. NIGHT OF THE EAGLE (Sidney Hayers, 1961) Janet Blair and Peter Wyngarde star in this very reasonable adaptation of Fritz Leiber's 'Conjure Wife'. Witchcraft is being practised at a college forcing a lecturer's wife to commit murder. (87 mins) THE DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE (Val Guest, 1960) A fearless Daily Express reporter uncovers a conspiracy of silence that makes Watergate look puny - nuclear tests have pushed the Earth out of orbit and it is now headed directly for the sun. ("A real scorcher!" said a contemporary reviewer). Scripted by Val Guest and Wolf Mankowitz and starring Edward Judd, Leo McKern, Janet Munro, and some authentic Fleet Street spear-carriers. INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (Philip Kaufman, 1978) Another Hugo nominee. Jack Finney's novel and Don Siegel's 1955 film refurbished with Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Leonard Nimoy and a big city background. Sutherland is altogether too passive a hero and the film lacks the 'closed-society' tension of its small-scale original model. Some slick effects tho'. Written by W.D. Richter. (115 mins). THE STEPF0RD WIVES (Bryan Forbes, 1974) An entertaining thriller based on Ira Levin's original novel. Katherine Ross's husband wants to replace her with a robot. If you can believe this unlikely sounding idea you can probably even believe you're having a good time watching the film. Proceed to the bar afterwards for remedial treatment. Script by William Goldman, also stars Peter Masterson and Paula Prentiss. (114 mins). WAR OF THE WORLDS ( Byron Haskin, 1953) There isn't much similarity between this and H.G. Wells' novel but if you can ignore the dialogue, the acting of the heroine (Anne Robinson), and all the wires holding up the Martian war machines you should derive a lot of fun out of this typical George Pal production of the 1950s. THE QUATERMASS CONCLUSION (Piers Haggard, 1979) Special preview of the first episode of Nigel Kneale's new Quatermass serial (also to be a feature film). John Mills plays the eponymous Professor. Also stars Simon MacCorkindale and Barbara Kellerman.
