Beyond the Time Barrier (1960)
Directed by Edgar G. Ulmer
Imagine all the peopleā€¦ as bloodthirsty mutants! Or deaf-mutes, or whatever. In the Detour director's straightforward sci-fi flick, all those warning/testing nukes we kept setting off have poisoned the atmosphere (a prescient note), as the helplessly heroic Air Force Major Bill Allison discovers: he accidentally breaks the time barrier on a test flight and lands his plane in 2024. The future! The survivors are sterile and living in a triangle-themed Citadel underground, but boys will be boys, skirts will be (short) skirts, and devious Russians will be cunning and excel at mathematics. Ten days on set; one temporal paradox; years of fallout. Elina Mishuris (Jan 17 at Lincoln Center, part of its Edgar G. Ulmer series)
