Westworld Series Episode 1

Help keep Now Playing on the air!

You wouldn’t want to go to Six Flags with Michael Crichton!  In 1990 the author wrote Jurassic Park–a story of a theme park where dinosaurs run amok.  And nearly two decades earlier Crichton also wrote and directed Westworld – a story about a fantasy theme park staffed by robots who rise up and kill their human masters.  The story is a clear template for the later dinosaur tale, and was a hit movie that influenced many later works including James Cameron’s Terminator.  Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob have gone to Westworld and if you donate to Now Playing you can take the ride with them!
