HARLAN ELLISON REMEMBERED
A BOY AND HIS DOG
Among sci-fi’s most acclaimed and prolific writers, Harlan Ellison (1934 - 2018) created fantastic worlds ranging from the inner mind to “The Outer Limits.”

“Demon With a Glass Hand” (1964, 51 min. Dir. Byron Haskin) Trent (Robert Culp) has no memory of his past - or why his hand is a computer lacking some fingers. To solve the mystery, he’ll have to find the missing digits - which are being held by a race of aliens trying to kill him. Harlan Ellison’s second “The Outer Limits” episode earned the WGA Award for television anthology scripts.

A BOY AND HIS DOG
1975, First Run Features, 91 min, USA, Dir: L.Q. Jones

Jason Robards and Don Johnson star in this cult classic, an adaptation of Harlan Ellison’s short story about the survivors of a nuclear holocaust. Slyly satiric, the film was directed by character actor (and Peckinpah favorite) L.Q. Jones.
