Another Movie From My Childhood

I saw this one too at the Northwest theater back in the 70's here in San Antonio

Many people might not realize but this is really the last major motion picture with a science fiction theme that was made without computers. No I'm not talking about the title graphics I mean the special effects themselves. This was all model work. Built in the Disney Studio shop that soon after was closed up. The ships the the scenes all of it was good old fashion movie making effects. Even the black hole itself was made with household paints in a spinng device. Old fasion hand drwan animation was used as well.

With computers these days, many of these wonderful movie tricks are becomming a lost art.

If you can go out get a copy and enjoy a little "old school"
