Classic Science Fiction Films with Forrest Ackerman

Legendary science fiction fan and scholar Forrest J. Ackerman lectures on great SF films from 1900 to 1970. Excerpted from an interview with KU Professor and novelist James Gunn. The full interview is on the Literature of SF DVD.

Ackerman's additional short clip offers an important warning to teachers who use early SF films in their classrooms. Don't forget to consider "What is the movie implying about science itself?" Many SF movies misportray science and scientists.
