Storyline

The movie Logan's Run (1976) depicts a supposedly Utopian society in the 23rd century, but one where, as producer Saul David puts it, "there is a worm in the apple". The filmmakers use current technology and ideals of pleasure to depict this perfect future. Director Michael Anderson finds meshing these two worlds an exciting challenge, especially in trying to create something that has never been seen before in the movies. The studio's technology department plays a key role in creating Anderson and David's vision. The movie's stars, Michael York and Jenny Agutter, provide their take on the movie, their roles and working with each other and with fellow co-star Richard Jordan. The filmmakers also need to create the antithesis of the modern Utopian world for the scenes taking place outside of the domed world. Written by Huggo

A Look Into the 23rd Century is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the movie Logan's Run
19 July 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Just watched this promotional short meant to possibly fill some time on TV whenever a movie ran short in the two-hour time slot. A Look Into the 23rd Century takes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of M-G-M's Logan's Run. This Sci-Fi tale about a future where everyone is just, to quote an old '60s saying, "letting it all hang out" before a certain age makes you vulnerable is showcased with comments from producer Saul David, director Michael Anderson, and actors Michael York and Jenny Agutter spread throughout the the 9-minute film. Also shown and mentioned is co-player Richard Jordan. Quite a fascinating look at the sets and special effects of this picture. Now I'm going to watch the feature itself...
