Did You Know?

Quotes

Dr. Henderson: Perhaps nothing more than a curiosity. Or you may find something beyond evaluation; the secret of who we are, how we got here, where we came from. Did we walk out of the Garden of Eden or did we crawl out of some primeval sea? Or have we always been fascinated by the stars, wondering about them, haunted by them because their light's along some half-remembered road we travelled once. Isn't that a search worth making?

Ancient Astronauts?
5 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Jud Taylor directed this TV movie that stars Stephen McHattie as a wanderer in New Mexico who chances upon an old Native American being attacked by young thugs who are after a medallion that he has in his possession. Kurt Russell plays a mysterious man who befriends him because he is also interested in the medallion, and they are soon joined by a native American woman who suspects that it is really one piece of a nine-part artifact left behind by ancient alien astronauts, and are pursued by agents of a wealthy man who wants it for himself...

Intriguing film tells an interesting story with good characters that seems to lead to a proposed TV series that never materialized. Little-known but worth seeking out on DVD.
