Review by John Christopher (posted on 19-Oct-2007)

I saw this film on a firebase in Viet Nam in about 1970 as one of those things they brought around. It was on one of the reel-to-reel projectors. It had a profound effect on me, but as hard as I looked, I could find hide nor hair of anything about it - then the wonders of the internet. I'm still in the dark ages concerning the internet, but stumbled into here. I have read the book a couple of times, thanks to the World Catalog in the library system, and have given it to other people so they can see why I am in the mindset that I'm in. I would dearly love to see the movie again, although it would probably not be exactly as I remembered it. It is, I think, prophetic not in the sense of biblical aspects, but a harbinger of things to come. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
