!!''Logan's Run'' movie

* BillingDisplacement: '''STARRING FARRAH FAWCETT''' -- TV Guide ad. Except Creator/JennyAgutter was the female lead, and Farrah's role was a minor part as an assistant in a face-lift shop.
* DawsonCasting: Michael York was already in his late thirties. Jenny Agutter was 24, playing a 17-year-old. The main reason the death-age was raised, from 21 in the novel to 30 in the movie, was because the actors chosen to play the roles could ''never'' pass as teenagers. Richard Jordan (Francis 7) was 38 years old during filming. This also bypasses issues with the limited hours younger actors can work -- not to mention the uncomfortable implications for some of sexually-active 14- and 15-year-old "adults".
* DevelopmentHell: A remake has been in the works for some time now. How long? Let's put it this way. [[http://www.rogermwilcox.com/LogansRun.html#remake One old website]] says that one plan was to cast Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio "of ''Romeo & Juliet'' fame". In other words, plans have been in the works since before ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}''.
* DisownedAdaptation: William F. Nolan has made his displeasure with the film known.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The powers that be insisted that many important scenes be cut so the result would be rated PG. We still get a quick glimpse of some bare ta-tas, though. Think of it as Movie Ratings March On. PG used to be much more permissive before the creation of the PG-13 rating.
* FollowTheLeader:
** Try to explain the plot of the movie to somebody who hasn't seen it. "Um, in a dystopian future, there are cops who hunt people down for trying to exceed their government-mandated lifespans..." [[Film/BladeRunner Similarity to any later film]] is a coincidence. It kinda is just coincidence considering that ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep'', the novel ''Film/BladeRunner'' is based on, came out in 1968, only one year after the release of the novel ''Literature/LogansRun''. Might be more. ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep'' is about people hunting down robots passing for humans. ''Film/BladeRunner'' added the whole government-mandate lifespan thing.
** ''Film/InTime'' seems a better comparison, to the point one might wonder if it is an offshoot or [[DuelingMovies dueling movie]] to the [[DevelopmentHell hellbound]] remake.
* ThrowItIn: In the final scene when the crowd is gathering in awe around the Old Man, one of the extras gives the Vulcan salute that is of course familiar from ''Franchise/StarTrek''. The director probably either didn't recognize it or didn't mind it in the least. At the time this film was made, ''Star Trek'' was still just some obscure cancelled TV show from TheSixties and had yet to [[PopCultureOsmosis catch on with the general public]]. It wouldn't have [[Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture its own official revival]] until three years later.

* RecycledTheSeries: Saul David and MGM studios had no dreams of a TV series when they were filming the movie.
