Default Idaho Transfer

I had the great pleasure of seeing this film again after many, many years. While being made in 1973, it message is as powerful as it was then. It involves time travel, while it's effects are by today's standards modest, it is made more belivable by it's simplicity.

I don't wan to say too much, and give it away. It is well worth renting, one of the few films directed by Peter Fonda, it's a shame it is not considered a classic of 1970's Sci Fi.

It's also easy to come by on cheap compilations also.

Yes, he has directed several films, this film got so little distribution back in 73' that even most Fonda fans don't even know about this film.

I have to keep my eyes open for it, but I probably will never get the chance to see it.
