5.0 out of 5 stars Your Time Is Up - Runner!, April 13 2013
When it comes to 1970s Sci-Fi on television, you cant go past Logans Run. The 70s on TV when it comes to science fiction was to some degree the golden age-but a golden age of experimentation as the networks/studios were trying hard to put something different on the tube to peak the audience interest. And so we had a variety of shows that were excellent in there conception and imagination; Planet of the Apes comes to mind as being probably the best show of the era, (being a POTA fan, Im bias) but there are other shows with just as equal input, and one of them was Logans Run.

I remember back in the late 70's seeing this film on television with fondness; as it was this film that made me a fan of actress Barbara Rush. It must have been a sub-conscience/subliminal influence, as I remember still back in the early 70's in vaguely seeing Barbara in another classic - `It Came From Outer Space', which should also be in your DVD library-I might add.

So it was decided then and there that Barbara was to be my first `Movie Star' that I would love to watch; and even now she is still my favourite actress after all these years-slowly but surely I hope to get all her films.

The 1950's was a treasure trove of classic science fiction films that were to… Read more
