Storyline

Television's Bock Rogers, Gil Gerard, narrates this nostalgic, but not-to-be-taken-seriously retrospective of science fiction and science fantasy films from silent classics like George Melies' "A Trip to the Moon" and Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" to contemporary box-office smashes like "Star Trek" The Motion Picture" and the "Star Wars" series. Speial attention is given to low budget 1950s camp B-film cult classics like "Queen of Outer Space" and "Cat Women of the Moon" in addition to A budget films like George Pal's "The War of the Worlds" and "Forbidden Planet." The affectionate documentary is divided into chapter headings in which various elements of the genre are examined in a lighthearted but affectionate manner. Written by duke1029@aol.com
