CYBORG 2087


CYBORG 2087
   Made-for-tv film (1966). Feature Film Corp. Dir Franklin Adreon, starring Michael Rennie, Karen Steele, Wendell Corey, Warren Stevens, Eduard Franz. Screenplay Arthur C. Pierce. 86 mins. Colour.
   This film, which though made for tv achieved theatrical release, has a renegade CYBORG (Rennie) from AD2087 going back to 1966 to prevent a scientist (Franz) from creating a device that will later be used by a totalitarian government for a mind-control programme to which the cyborgs themselves are central. He is followed back in time by two government agents, both cyborgs, but he overcomes them and persuades the scientist to destroy his invention, though he knows that by doing so he will eliminate the possibility of his own existence. When the device is indeed destroyed, he disappears along with everybody's memories of his visit. The narrative has a better grasp of TIME PARADOXES than usual for tv, but the performances are weak. The plot bears a similarity to that of the much later film TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY (1991).
