Originally the film was released with a running time of 112 minutes but several notable critics denounced the slow pacing so, in 1968, director Arch Oboler cut the movie to 91 minutes. Unfortunately, the edits were made directly to the original camera negative and the footage was discarded. No prints of the 112 minute version are known to exist. See more »
My beloved grandmother took me to see this movie at the theater. She was well into her 70s at the time and pretty fed up with movies but she (and I) had fun with this one.
The movie is very slow paced and tedious. One early line from the male lead got a big laugh in the theater: When his wife is in labor (in a plane I think) and about to give birth, he desperately asks her, "can't you hold it in?" What I really remember is the 3D. Even Grandma was amazed, excited and laughing like a kid (along with everyone else in the theater) at the way things really came out of the screen at you. At one point, a tray of beer glasses floats off the bar and into the audience, very slowly. It gets closer and closer until it looks like you could touch it if you stood up and reached over. Many people in the theater did just that (myself included).
What fun. Great memories of a very happy afternoon. Thanks, Grandma :-)
