When I looked at the reviews for this short film, I noticed a review by Marc (firstname.lastname@example.org). Despite summing up the film quite well, some folks gave him some 'not helpfuls' and I wonder if this is a case of shooting the messenger. In other words, Marc complains about the shabby production values for the film and people give him these negative ratings--but the production values WERE shabby. The editing was bad, shots of folks going to a buffet made the studio looked like a Poverty Row production house and the films they hyped were, for the most part, mere shadows of the quality productions of the past. While "Logan's Run" is a decent little diversion, touting this as a successor to films like "Gone With the Wind" and "Meet Me in St. Louis" is ridiculous. By 1975, the studio was all but bankrupt. Soon, the entire back library of films would be sold to Turner Entertainment, the props and costumes would be sold at auction and production would all but cease. And yet, this ironic little film CELEBRATES! It's like a person celebrating because they've contracted syphilis or cancer! For fans of classic Hollywood, this film is like a sad nail in a coffin--something that just hurts to watch.
