Movie Challenge Day 1


Paul Mantee and The Woolly Monkey in Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964)A friend didn’t tag me, so I thought I’d respond. I’m doing this on fb without commentary, but the blogging medium beckons a few words.

Like many boys, I liked adventure and science fiction. Preferably both in the same flick. I watched, but didn’t thrill to, the shooting up aliens movies. About once in ten films I would find a quieter, thoughtful experience like this astronaut’s experience in isolation on Mars. Human ingenuity putting pieces together–still like it today.
