My Grandmother Is In This Movie!!
- Lisa Logan
Our family knew about this movie while it was being made. My grandmother has a speaking line in it, "Eddie Fisher - I thought he was dead.". She was in her 80s. She lived in NYC in the Actor's Guild Building on 43rd/42nd between 9th and 10th. She was an extra in many movies. Just a little old lady in the background. This would have been her "big break." Sadly the movie was never released - we've never seen it. SO SAD I missed it last January. I hope they do show it again!! And I hope I have some advanced notice.
Multiple views required....one of the true great classic movies...
PLEASE show it again!
- Barney D
This was genius and loved seeing it. Please run it again!
Play It Again!
- Sean Casas
I cant believe this movie wasn't released. This movie has so much style and Sam Jaffe looked the same as he did in Lost Horizon 47 years earlier!
Cult Classic Candidate
- Brian Gossiaux
Having its film debut on TCM was a treat! Unreleased by MGM for 30 years, this will certianly become a treasured cult classic if TCM will air this again and again. I watched this without any foreknowledge of the cast or story line. What a surprise to see Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd in a film I never knew they were in along with many other notable cast members. I had to look up the title on the internet to see why I had never heard of this before and realized that I was watching the films TV debut right on TCM! The story was entertaining along the lines of the older science fiction genre. Please air this again TCM!
Nothing Lasts Forever - Play It Again!
- Jim Ballard
This movie is exceptional and apparently only TCM has it. A cult classic in the making...please play it again and again!
Nothing Lasts Forever -- Even Obscurity
- Frank Burton
This undiscovered, multifaceted diamond, buried for 30 years unreleased in the deepest pits of MGM's vault, is one of the quirkiest and most spellbinding movies I've ever stumbled over. Stellar, oddball performances by everyone from a young Lauren Tom (as a glowing-antennaed Lunarian/Hawaiian), Zach Galligan (as a security guard/instant piano prodigy), and Bill Murray (as an Ugly-American steward at Mall of the Moon), to an old Imogene Coca (with an implant in her head that makes her replace the word "Moon" with "Miami"), Sam Jaffe (in a role akin to his Professor Barnhardt of Klatuu fame), and even Eddie Fisher (playing himself as a lounge lizard on a lunar bus route). Imagine erasing every awful moment in Eraserhead and turning it into a sparkly, future-retro fantasy. Then toss your poor approximation out of the window of your limited mind, and just find a way -- any way -- to Watch. This. Movie.
