Sci-Fi December continues with a look at The Creation of the Humanoids. Copyrighted 1960, the film was directed by Wesley Barry and written by Jay Simms. It plays like a stage play about a post-Apocalyptic world in which androids are a large part of society and human beings fear being replaced by them.
Jennifer Handorf and Dan Martin join Mike to discuss the film, science fiction as allegory, and intentional versus accidental genius.
