Did You Know?


Elmer Bernstein's score was recorded with The London Symphony Orchestra the very same orchestra in which all of John Williams' first three Star Wars trilogy scores were recorded with and also Trevor Jones' score to Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal (1982). Gary Kurtz was the producer of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and The Dark Crystal, which was his first independent production after Empire Strikes Back.

Classic human/machine angst
10 February 2003 | by (Atwater, USA) – See all my reviews

This film has many of the same elements of say, Asimov's "nightfall" book, and is better than Nightfall the movie. Further this film breaks Mark Hamil out of the naive Hero status Star Wars could have locked him into. The gentleman who plays the android does a very gentlemanly job of it... perhaps inspired by or inspiring TNG Data. I am always moved by this film.
