The Starlost-1973 Promotional Film
THE STARLOST, co-created but written off by Harlan Ellison, was heavily touted at the time but since it was a syndicated program in the US, it was never picked up by any of my local stations. Thus I never saw a single episode until this past year when I saw the pilot (which featured a fun performance by Sterling Hayden that contrasted greatly with the wooden performances of the leads including 2001 star Keir Dullea). What we have here appears to be a promo film sent around to local stations to help sell it. I can see why no one bought it now.
