    Biggest point of interest for me was how a film made in 1968 and set in the future still manages to look stuck in the 1950s.

    we all should be grateful that this kept the lead actor off the streets. it is not perfect. it does keep people going if shown at night. it does inspire story ideas.it can be called fun.the truth is it is alright.a major victory compared to a few other movies the lead would do. please respect the supporting players.

  • Less Than Power(ful))(1968)

    Jim Tanner(George Hamilton) ironic use of name, is part of a group of scientists studying the pain threshold for future space travelers(ouch). One of them has extraordinary powers(which one) and how does this person know that, good question, but not fully explained, if at all. Anyway after Hamilton is expelled from the Lab for not having documented college records he travels to find the source of the Power, Adam Hart. Good luck with that. All star cast mostly wasted on poor script development and loose script. Could have been allot smoother and crescendo ending,. Michael Rennie, Suzanne Pleshette, Yvonne De Carlo, Aldo Ray, Arthur O'Connell,Richard Carlson, Gary Merrill, Earl Holliman, Nehemiah Persoff,Ken Murray.Barbara Nichols 2.5 stars out of 5.A George Pal Production ...Sad...

  • This film rocks!!!

    This film is just campy, quirky and "60s" enough to make it GREAT! Definitely Class A MST3K material. I never heard of it before and seeing a young (but still very tanned) George Hamilton and the rest of the mainstay of 60s TV shows makes this a sleeper classic. George Pal definitely was a man way ahead of his time (or maybe behind his time). Whatever...When you see this movie on TCM's schedule. watch it (and record it). Because you'll have to wait a long time to get another chance. I just happened to catch this late one night in Oct 2009 and it's been 6 months and not shown again...Dammit!...And IT IS NOT AVAILABLE ON HOME VIDEO IN ANY FORM!!

  • Top Notch Production....

    If you like good, smart sci-fi; this film is for you. Everything about this production is high end quality; from the brilliant musical score from Miklos Rosza(Note the opening of the film) to probably one of the best cast for a sci-fi film ever assembled led by Mr. Michael Rennie. Through in George Pal's visual style and a great plot twist and you'll be sure to remember this movie. Grab some popcorn and prepared to be entertained.

  • Why TCM is so great!!!!!

    I've never heard of this movie & will try to catch it tonight. I love the old 1950's & 1960's Sci fi horror. Thanks TCM for finding & playing these. You are a fantastic channel. I LOVE YOU! TCM! I'd love to start a channel that plays these movies all the time (old movies horror etc.).

    A superb adaption of Frank M Robinson'snovel, with a rather deft performance by George Hamilton in the lead, this thriller is unique in the science fiction genre. For one thing, ideas and intelligent supposition run throughout, with some wonderfully done moments of sheer terror. Add some wit, and you get a pretty decent film. Brilliant score there, too!
