Logan’s Run is a rewarding futuristic film that appeals both as spectacular-looking escapist adventure as well as intelligent drama.

Heading the cast are Michael York and Richard Jordan, two members of a security guard force which supervises the life of a domed-in hedonistic civilization all comprised of persons under the age of 30; after that, the civilization’s tribal rules call for a ceremony called ‘renewal’, though nobody’s quite sure what that entails.

York, intrigued and abetted by Jenny Agutter, decides to flee, with Jordan. Peter Ustinov is featured as a withered old man living alone on the outside, in the ruins of Washington, DC.

The three young principals and Ustinov come off very well.

1976: Honorary Award (visual effects).
