Frank is correct. BEGINNING OR THE END was at SF/10. Bruce liked to introduce the documentary format to the Marathon. He was behind WORLD OF TOMORROW and considered THE ATOMIC CAFE as well (Atomic has played in Ohio). BEGINNING is a docu-drama. For the record, I really like WORLD OF TOMORROW and ATOMIC CAFE as movies (BEGINNING is ok, if too dry). BUT, as Marathon films? Not so much.

I will always remain convinced they thought they were getting the giant grasshopper film when they booked it.


NOPE. NOT. WHAT. HAPPENED.

Yeah I know, but you have to admit it's a real odd man out title from the marathon's history with no connection to sci-fi, fantasy or horror. Even the documentaries have some connection.
 

I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far.

Definitely not what happened.  I supplied posters for that marathon and I showed up with the grasshopper movie poster Beginning of the End thinking that they had made a mistake.  When I showed them the one sheet, I was told that we were in fact showing Beginning Or The End although they felt that the giant grasshopper movie looked better.  They did indeed know the movie they were getting was the A-bomb movie and not the Bert I Gordon movie.
 

I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death.

there was also a "first men on the moon" "first men in the moon" debacle in marathon history.
