Steven Spielberg says that science fiction is the greatest exercise for the brain, it stretches the belief that anything is possible. George Lucas, Ridley Scott and James Cameron talk about how science fiction films developed from the earlier naive films to today's sophisticated sci-fi thrillers, and how they have remained popular. They analyse films from the '50s including Cold War productions dealing with the paranoia of the time regarding the atom bombs and the end of the world.

His big-screen acting career comprised just five movies - but they were five of the greatest films of his generation. Each earned a Best Picture Oscar nomination and teamed him with some of the most acclaimed actors and directors of the 20th century. Between 1972 and 1978, John Cazale co-starred in The Godfather, The Godfather: Part II, The Conversation, Dog Day Afternoon and The Deer Hunter. Collectively, the films hauled in no less than 40 Oscar nominations - including 14 for Cazale's co-stars - and hundreds of millions in box office receipts. Many of his contemporaries remember him as one of the brightest talents of his day, and he is venerated by some of today's most celebrated actors and filmmakers. Yet, just three decades after his promising career ended with his untimely death, actor John Cazale is largely unknown to the general public.
