The Shape of Things to Come

Alexander Korda’s public domain film version of H.G. Wells’ 1936 novel of the same title. A film about war made on the eve of World War II. Before one sides with Wells anti-war stance it may be worth noting that he favored eradication of inferior people, in his ‘New Republic’, something which makes this story not as black and white as its genteel period style might suggest.

Running time: 1 hour 33 mins.
