Fortunately, two innovations have taken notice of this niche market and are getting interested science fiction film buffs closer to the classic movies. The first is DVD, which has embraced a new wave of restored classic films. The previously mentioned The Woman In The Moon, for example, was released on DVD in 2004, nicely restored and available both alone and as part of a Fritz Lang boxed set that includes Metropolis. Earlier classic science fiction shorts are often bundled together on DVD: Georges Méliès' groundbreaking shorts, for example, are available on Landmarks Of Early Film, Vol.
THE HISTORY: A WARP-SPEED TOUR Aelita: Queen Of Mars By the end of the 1920s, sound was working its way into science fiction films as well as in other genres. Two of the earliest sound pictures in the SF genre were the 1928 UK film High Treason, a futuristic anti-war film (released in both sound and silent versions), and 1929's The Mysterious Island, starring Lionel Barrymore. This film not only featured sound in two film sequences, but also colour (although reportedly no colour prints of the film now exist).
One of the lesser adaptations of Dick's work, which is mildly ironic because it's one of the more faithful retellings of his stories. Having said that, it's got a grimy, B-movie appeal. A man reverse-engineers technology for companies and then erases his memory of the work in exchange for big bucks. Then he wakes up after a multi-year job to find that he's exchanged his paycheck for a series of weird clues, and that piecing them together puts his life at risk. Interesting idea, but less-than-great execution, which is strange because director John Woo is usually excellent.
