Logan's Run Motion Picture Production Information

Early Motion Picture Synopsis! You will ove the new ending in which the "Old Man" drives up the City of Domes in the beat up Rolls Royce! This was later changed to a horse drawn cart in pre-production art then droped in favor of just walking there.

This article is, I think, from the Dallas Times Herald. I do not know the date. It talks mostly about Saul David and the production of the motion picture. The most interesting bit comes at the end where he talks about the disolving body effect and how it came about. Interesting reading all around though.

Another press release telling of the upcoming use of the World trade Center and other Texas locations. Not entirely accurate. After communicating with the texas Film Comission it turns out that they applied for permits all over, then actually used very few of them.

A memo listing proposed locatons. Hand annotated with notes about visiting the sets years later. Many of these locations were never used. If you are interested in the various locations used please visit the Locations Page

Dallas Morning News Wed. June 11, 1975
Only beautiful People Need Apply Article by Patty Moore talking about the local extra used in the production of the movie. For their talents and looks they got $2.15 per hour working on the set.

Dallas Times Herald Thurs July 10, 1975
Movie 'extra' worried what mother will think
An extra in the Love Shop sequence worries what his mother will think when she sees the motion picture. Also mentions Adrian McKnight who is they guy outside of the New You Shop who has a few lines but was cut form the movie.

An Extras Life Is Filled With Boredom
Interesting look at casting practices for the Love Shop sequence. Even more interesting for the fact that sometimes they were not given any direction as to what was going to happen. When they were hearded into the great hall and Michael York comes out ot make his speech about "You don't have to go in there" they all applauded at the end not realizing they were on camera.

I am unclar who this "Progress Report" was aimed at. It is filled with cippings about the production. Most of them seem to be accounts of the movie's production, holograms, and costumes. It may have been distributed to US theaters before the premier, or it could have been aimed at oversease theater owners as it lists a film distributor other than UA. If you want a file large enough to read all the individual articles please e-mail me and I will add it to my list of things to do.

New 2-24-02 Preview Comment Card form the Advance Screening
At the advance preview screeing MGM handed out comment cards so that the audience could leve their thoughts abotu the movie. As an optin participants were also asked for demographic infomration. This was a card not turned in at that screening. I often wonder when looking at if my comments would have made a difference. What if we could all travel back in time and pack the theater with logan fans?


New 6-23-02 In 1981 Saul David published his autobiography The Industry. To celebrate the 25th birthday of the film, here is the section dealing with Censorship and the Love Shop sequence! Be warned that it deals with some rather loathsome language coming from the mouths of the censors! ; ) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6


New 2-24-02 Your Life Symbol
At selected cities across the country these life symbol cards were handed out on opening day. This was printed on red sticker paper with a pre cut hole in the middle which you would peal off and wear in the palm of your hand.

If you went to opening day in selected cities you were rewarded by being given your very own 'life symbol' in the form of this removable tatoo. They only came in one color: Grapefruit! Sort of an interesting collectable.
