The Final Prgramme (1973)

Final Programme, The (1973, GBR) C-89m. * D: Robert Fuest. Starring Jon Finch, Jenny Runacre, Hugh Griffith, Patrick Magee, Sterling Hayden, Harry Andrews. Daredevil, globetrotter, intellectual Jerry Cornelius (Finch) is faced with the possible end of the world and sets out to investigate the so-called Final Programme, which was designed to survive the Apocalypse. Science-fiction, based on the novel by Michael Moorcock, is much too pretentious and confusing to score any high points. A curio nevertheless, and as such it inspired a cult. From the director of the DR. PHIBES movies. Released in the U.S. as THE LAST DAYS OF MAN ON EARTH (at 79/81m.).
