Ellisonian Flashback

Michael Ansara, who died July 31, played Qarlo in Harlan Ellison’s Outer Limits episode “Soldier” —  one of the sources ripped off by James Cameron for Terminator .

Here’s a video interview in which Harlan explains how he dealt with that and got his name placed in the movie’s credits.

One thought on “Ellisonian Flashback

  1. In the interview, Mr. Ellison is calm, straightforward, not using melodramatic adjectives or hyperbole’. He states his case clearly, examples are shown, and that his viewpoint is credible is obvious, unlike with some of the screaming-tone-on-the-topic, pro-Cameron websites I’ve seen.
