Blane), Yul Brynner (The Gunslinger), Alan Oppenheimer (Chief Supervisor), Dick Van Patten (The Banker)
Written and directed by Michael Crichton and clearly a
huge inspiration for his most famous work, Jurassic Park.
Set inside a theme park where guests can recreate the
past, including the Wild West, a robot cowboy malfunctions and relentlessly pursues two of the visitors.
Fine entertainment, even four decades later, with Yul
Brynner delivering a brilliantly menacing performance as the out of control android. Unfortunately for Michael Crichton, he dated the story himself by taking the exact same formula and going
one step further with his 1990 novel (Jurassic Park).

Boring sequel to Westworld, starring Peter Fonda & Blythe
Danner as journalists who visit the theme park two years after the malfunctioning events in the first film and uncover a conspiracy with the robots being created there.
This film may have a bigger budget than the original film, but
is inferior in story, thrills, suspense and tension.
