Episode 172: The Black Hole (1979)

maverickEpisode 172: We travel back to 1979 for the first of our "Forgotten Disney" films, for director Gary Nelson's sci-fantasy epic "The Black Hole!" This was the first non-G-rated film ever released by Disney studios, and it was a stunning first step away from pure children's fare! Starring Maximilian Schell, Anthony Perkins, Robert Forster, Joseph Bottoms, Yvette Mimieux, Ernest Borgnine, and the uncredited voices of Roddy McDowall and Slim Pickens, this film explores the phenomenon of a black hole and the depths one man may sink to in order to explore its reaches! Pair this story and cast with a stunning score from James Bond composer John Barry, along with truly (for the time) ground-breaking special effects, an ending that's full of nuance and sub-text, and you have a space opera for the ages (although not everyone agrees).
