THX 1138


1971       Directed by George Lucas

THX 1138 is a startling glimpse into the 25th century. THX 1138, a Warner Bros. release, is a deceptively rich film. Its futuristic society lives totally underground. Men and women both have clean-shaven heads and are perpetually high on soothing drugs that kill all aggressive and sexual drives. The police are metallic-faced robots, totally without malice. When THX locks himself into a computer tape room to try to find his woman, the robots break down the door with cries of "Don't worry, we'll get you out of there." There is never any overt threat. THX is one of the subterranean people. But he is one of the few who wants out. He stops taking drugs and his subsequent emergence from the drug-induced haze leads to love for his roommate, a shapely girl named LUH 3417. THX is played by the highly competent actor, Robert Duvall. His inamorata, LUH, is, or was before her head was shaved, a strawberry blond named Maggie McOmie, who is a total newcomer to films. The third star, Donald Pleasence,

otherwise SEN 5241, the excellent British character actor. American Zoetrope (Greek for life-movement and also the name of a primitive movie viewing apparatus) is itself still in swaddling clothes. It is the creation of Francis Ford Coppola, who at 30 has a decade of film-making experience with such pictures as "You're a Big Boy Now," "Finian's Rainbow" and "The Rain People." Coppola, with the generous help of Warner Bros., has set himself up in an autonomous studio in San Francisco which he has turned from an old warehouse into a modern moviemaking plant. Coppola sees Zoetrope as the base for low-budget pictures bearing the personal imprint of the people making them. A dozen young filmmakers are currently toiling in this freebooters' sanctuary on promising projects. Among them is George Lucas, who wrote and directed THX 1138 A longtime friend of Coppola's, he fell into science fiction as a 10-year-old reading Flash Gordon and other supermen comic books. Later, while attending the film school at the University of Southern California, he made a brilliant short called "THX 1138-11B" which won all sorts of prizes and became the basis of his first feature.
