The Black Hole
DIRECTOR: GARY NELSON
CAST: ANTHONY PERKINS, ERNEST BORGNINE
A stunning feat of then-cutting-edge computer FX and gorgeous production design that’s as impressive as ever, Walt Disney’s John Barry-scored contribution to the post-Star Wars sci-fi boom follows research vessel the U.S.S. Palomino through the depths of space, where it comes across a ship, the long-missing U.S.S. Cygnus, perched just outside a black hole. The Palomino crew, including Anthony Perkins and Ernest Borgnine, attempt to extract secrets from Cygnus commander Maximilian Schell and his android crew, leading to a plunge into the mysteries of the cosmos, and a carnival of surrealistic imagery which has marked the imaginations of generations of viewers.
