Love to Brisbane especially, lest I forget.
And to the desert
In the post-apocalyptic future survival in the barren wastes means searching for grub wherever you can, but a young man wants ... err ... more, if you know what I mean. A telepathic dog with a radar tuned for such sure comes in handy. What's the moral of the tale? True pulp sci-fi don't need no stinkin' moral. A cult classic with more questions than answers, but okay.
Although greatly ballyhooed the work is finally only a so-so effort, plants from space reminding us to certainly always finish yer salad. In the meantime I got the feeling that Howard Keel was the only Hollywood that could be got ... and that they shoulda passed on him and picked some local talent, as lifeless a performance as ever seen given. What's he doing in a sci-fi anyway? Here is a work dying, crying, to be repackaged, re-done.
Raymond Massey (with his nigh patented homesapien superior act set on eleven) leads the cast in a glorious yet timely visualization of Herbert George Wells forecast for mankind's future. In it, Wells predicts World War ll, space travel, television and all sorts of modern day taken-for-granted-now stuff, years before any of it actually existed, a straight talking Nostradamus. He's wrong about some few minor details, but it's easily forgivable compared to how right the man was. Put this on a double feature with Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Fan of the English language? Fancy yourself as your local arbiter for the British vernacular? Well then this adaptation of Shaw's is just your ticket and man how she sparkles, with more wit per scene, per exchange, than a season's worth of 30 Rock. Howard blueprints Higgens for the generations but Hiller imbues Dolittle with such humanity as to shimmer like a jewel.
I love when I see a film that I didn't know about and then find out that it's quite the little gem. Enter this bit of Brit wartime propaganda that showcases the contributions of the fairer sex, interestingly presented as if trying to convince dimwitted British males that they were blessed lucky to have the ladies on their sider. Therein is the find here, a slice of real Britannica, how the wartime male viewed the other half, their dream women, well presented by director Leslie Howard, who LEFT HOLLYWOOD to return and give a hand back home during wartime ... my new hero, as that decision ultimately costs him his life.
