Somebody in Hollywood was looped at a party and said, "Hey! Here's a H.G. Wells story nobody's put on film yet." Soooooo.... I was Privileged (?) to be in Belle Glade, Fla. when they shot their scenes there, and they shot them at my boss's sugar processing plant. I met Robert Strauss, a bit actor of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, on Avenue E. one afternoon, and had a small conversation. Told him I'd bumped into him outside of the Lamb's Club in the city a decade before. Well, the movie, much like the book, was disjointed and far from thrilling. At least the book earned two stars. The movie didn't even earn one.

I like where the book was going, it just didn't have a lot of content. The story could have been better with some embellishment. I suppose I shouldn't have expected a lot from a 20 page short story.
