Product Description

Product Description

A sci-fi/thriller double bill. In 'The Medusa Touch' novelist John Morlar (Richard Burton) is haunted by the belief that he can, through the power of telekenesis, cause fatal disasters to occur. This obsession is reinforced when, after Morlar is assaulted, a moon mission crisis and jet crash occur in short order. The police turn to Morlar's mysterious therapist, Zonfeld (Lee Remick), to try to get to the bottom of the case. Whilst in 'The Boys From Brazil' Nazi hunter Ezra Lieberman (Laurence Olivier) is aghast when he stumbles upon a plot by war criminal Josef Mengele (Gregory Peck) to produce clones of Adolf Hitler using cells taken from the late dictator's body. It is Mengele's intention to reproduce Hitler not only genetically but in terms of his upbringing, as the boys created from the cells are to grow up in environments as close as possible to the Fuhrer's.

I obtained this for The Medusa Touch. Its an enjoyable film but admittedly not a classic. Anything with Richard Burton cannot be bad, he has an immense presence and could have been one of the greatest actors ever. Shame he did not have better roles.

I bought this principally for The Boys From Brazil with The Medusa Touch as a bonus. The Boys From Brazil is a well paced film with top class acting. I use the scene explaining the process of cloning in my teaching.

These two movies are like comfort food for nostalgia. Remember how good an actor Richard Burton was, well here is your sample of that talent. Enjoyed every second.
