George Pal’s Logan’s Run?

While thumbing through “Famous Monsters” #50 (July 1968), Forry Ackerman refers to upcoming films in an article “Happy Days Are Here Again” (pg. 4), including George Pal’s “most expensive under-taking of a lifetime: LOGAN’S RUN”. Wow.

Too bad Pal never brought the completed project to fruition.

Forry also refers to a flick “Night of the Auk”. I wonder what that was about?

Here’s additional info on Pal’s “Run”.

  1. Night of the Auk was based upon an Arch Oboler radio play called “Rocket from Manhattan.” It was broadcast, as I recall, on X Minus One vas well as some other shows including Obolers own program in about 1945.

    The complete script is at

    It’s a cautionary tale about Atomic Bombs.

    Perhaps someone was considering bringing it to the big screen?
