It makes for a fascinating read because the production has everything: conflict between the director and crew, ornery actors, elaborate visual effects, a diverse roster of artists with their own dueling motivations, a lengthy battle with the studio, and a tumultuous release. Sammon excels at tangling with the film's enormous legacy, analyzing the synthesis of ideas and techniques which makes it such a classic of science-fiction.
