Trivia:
Dalton Trumbowas a passionate backer of the screenplay of the film and did his best to persuade various producers to produce it. Great deal of interest but no one wanted to do it with Mickey Rooney, who was Bourla's first choice for the role of Noah. It was during one of the long past-midnight meetings between Trumbo and Bourla, when the screenplay of Johnny Got His Gun (1971) was also analyzed and discussed, that Bourla suggested to Trumbo to direct it himself.See more »

wow is it bad, 11 October 2007
Author: j_chy from United States

I think that someone was trying to be allegorical. They Failed.

The first 2/3 of the film are mildly interesting as Noah invents friends and something resembling _DRAMA_ shows up, you almost feel as if maybe a _PLOT_ might ensue. There are nascent _CHARACTERS_ and some minor _CONFLICTS_ hinting that a larger conflict could occur. (Protagonist is up the tree, we know that rocks can be thrown at him.. and we are eagerly anticipating the first volley...) But then....nothing happens.

The final third of the film degrades into a cacophony of a history-buff's self-serving game with an audio tape recorder. All links to plot, allegory, drama, character, conflict, and sanity are severed. Maybe this is supposed to represent Noah's ever-less-grounded state of mind, but the degree of his grasp on reality was well-established earlier in the film and the noise becomes as annoying as a Phillip Glass composition.

Now to 2 small details worth mentioning: 1)There are some weak humorous points such as Noah's ability to construct a latrine or Noah's resemblance to one of the Marx Brothers. 2)The in-your-face allusion to The 10 Commandments was out of place and over the top.
