One of the major science fiction pictures of its era. J. Lee Thompson was originally to direct, but was busy with McKenna's Gold. Franklin Schaffner was recommended to replace him by star Charlton Heston. Author Pierre Boulle objected to the famous ending provided by Rod Serling (rewritten by Michael Wilson), but later came to accept it as better than the one in his novel. Followed by four sequels, a short lived network tv series, a Saturday morning cartoon series and a 2001 remake.

Truly a film both of and ahead of its time. It was a valedictory for Karloff, only a year or two before his passing...
Also one of the few screen credits for Daniel Mayer Selznick, son of David O. Selznick and grandson of Louis...
