The Man From Earth WORK



Interestingly in my version the scene with the Man in Black and the one in the desert with Billingsley are reversed; the movie ends with the slightly weird request from Billingsley and the Man in Black shows up in the credits. Totally weird scene if you ask me, framing John as a psycho-murderer is about as far as you can move away from the John from the original movie as you can. Really, really odd.

Regarding how Art when from skeptic to believer, I thought it was explained several times that Art was angry and sought out to disprove John but found himself further and further into the rabbit hole when he found out that John scrubbed his online identity, finding out about previous professorships at other colleges with the same physical description but no photo, etc, etc.


Apart from his Star Trek work, Bixby is most famous for the short story "It's a Good Life", which was adapted into a memorable episode of The Twilight Zone. The episode starred Bill Mumy as the boy, and featured Don Keefer. He also wrote the original story for the 1966 science fiction classic Fantastic Voyage (featuring a music score by Leonard Rosenman), that earned him his one year earlier Hugo Award nomination in the same category.


Jerome Bixby's last great work, was a screenplay The Man from Earth. Inspired by the Romanian legends of Krim Rosu, it was conceived in the early 1960s and was completed on his death bed in April of 1998. Much like the Star Trek episode "Requiem for Methuselah", The Man From Earth deals with the subject of immortality. In 2007, Jerome Bixby's Man From Earth (alternate title) was turned into an independent motion picture executive produced by his son Emerson Bixby, directed by Richard Schenkman and starring David Lee Smith, William Katt, Richard Riehle, Tony Todd, Annika Peterson, Alexis Thorpe, Ellen Crawford, and John Billingsley.


Some might say that film may have been the poorest medium to tell such a story; perhaps it would fit the podcast format better. But much of the resonance of a good story comes from watching the storyteller's mannerisms, the movement of the hands, the shifting of the eyes. It's the subtlety that our eyes catch but our ears cannot.


The movie starts with Professor John Oldman packing his things to leave and start a new life. He invites his friends to say goodbye and decides to reveal the reason for his departure. The starting point of the narration is a simple question asked by Oldman to his friends: what would a man from the upper paleolithic look like if he had survived until the present day? As scientists, the protagonists play his game and investigate the question, not knowing whether the story is a bad joke or a genuine narration. One of the best movies I've watched and definitely one of the most under-rated.


Once is about a vacuum cleaner/repairman/street musician and a florist in a boy-meets-girl-then-makes-music tale of love, friendship, family, and freaking great music. You can just feel the passion from this simple but charming low-budget movie capturing the chemistry of music making. The film's music will make your skin tingle and hair stand on end. How good is it? In addition to the film winning an Oscar for its music, the Broadway musical version has won 8 Tonys. In short - get ready for a sonic masterpiece!


One of the most original time-travel thrillers since 12 Monkeys. A brilliant subversion of the Time Paradox trope, with enough plot twists to keep you entertained until well after the movie is finished. Predestination is an amazing movie with great performances from Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook. It's a movie that will feel like Inception, when it comes to messing with your mind and barely anyone has heard of it. It is highly underrated and unknown, sadly.


The Man from Earth was shared freely among Internet users, and the film was a surprise success largely because of this viral distribution. We tend to frown upon peer-to-peer file sharing sites, but the producer publicly recognized and thanked users of BitTorrent, even though they shared the film without express permission.

He wasn't preserved in ice. He didn't travel through time. He just kicked around, wandering from glacier to fertile crescent to Renaissance city, forever looking 35. He met Christopher Columbus. He dined with religious heroes. He even faked death, just to make a clean break and start anew.

The Man From Earth, directed by Richard Schenkman from an original script by the great Jerome Bixby, begins on an inauspicious note. The dialogue in the opening scene sounds post-dubbed, the visuals look dull, and the lines are delivered in a flat monotone. The always dependable Tony Todd, John Billingsley and William Katt are present, however, helping to maintain interest until the startling premise is revealed: What if a caveman, born 14,000 years ago, somehow survived to the modern day?


Film (2007; vt The Man from Earth). Falling Sky Entertainment. Directed by Richard Schenkman. Written by Jerome Bixby. Cast includes John Billingsley, Ellen Crawford, William Katt, Annika Peterson, Richard Riehle, David Lee Smith, Alexis Thorpe and Tony Todd. 87 minutes. Colour.


This unusual film, its screenplay completed by Bixby shortly before his death in 1998, constitutes a true test of the proposition that sf is a literature of ideas, since it involves absolutely no special effects, only an intriguing conceit developed entirely by means of dialogue. It also provides an interesting contrast to Bixby's other story about an immortal man, the Star Trek episode "Requiem for Methuselah" (1968): whereas that story's Flint was a genius whose past identities had included Leonardo da Vinci and Johannes Brahms, Oldman repeatedly emphasizes that he is only an ordinary man, whose extraordinary achievements emerged solely from the wisdom learned in the course of his long life. And while "Requiem for Methuselah" is ultimately a cautionary tale about the drawbacks of Immortality, Bixby here artfully avoids both of the usual extremes of stories addressing this theme, as Oldman's immortality is viewed as neither a curse nor a blessing, but simply as a different sort of life that he had to adjust to. This overlooked film's direct-to-DVD release included a track of commentary from Bixby's son (Jan) Emerson Bixby (1963- ) and sf scholar Gary Westfahl. [GW]


The movie is just 89 minutes long. But its 89 minutes of mystery, science, history, fantasy and inquisitiveness. To an extent, it was a questioning of world history and it definitely shakes the beleifs that we thought were true and could never go wrong. I would definitely suggest this movie. A thumbs up from me.


There is nothing more certain, they say, than death and taxes. Mortality hangs over the head of each and every person on this planet. Some welcome it, some seek it, some fear it, some predict it, some ignore it. In this wonderfully challenging play The Man from Earth, we are faced with the question- what if we could be immortal? What would one do, faced with the prospect of living on and on, seeing those around you age and pass, but continuing to stay frozen in time?


The play The Man from Earth has many layers and brings more questions than answers but certainly addresses the existential issues about perceptions of time, reality, religion and the purpose of life. As the play reaches its end we are slapped with a climactic revelation that will stay with each audience member long afterwards.

And in every being endowed with intelligence and with liberty, in other words who possesses the privileges of spirit,5 subsistence is the ontological foundation of personality, through which this being holds himself in hand, is a moral agent who posits free decisions according to a mode like no other, plays his role in the world with a visage, and an immortal visage, and with an immortal destiny, -- in short, is a universe to himself, whereas all the rest in the great universe of here below shows us only structures in interaction destined to perish one day with the earth. Each human being, however wretched a fellow he may be, is thus a person before other men and before God, and possesses the dignity of person. 041b061a72
