The Final Programme 1973 15

86 mins United Kingdom Director. Robert Fuest

This cult adaptation of Michael Moorcock’s novel stars Jon Finch as hip, party-hungry adventurer Jerry Cornelius, troubled by the recent passing of his father but reluctantly on the hunt for the mysterious 'Final Programme': dad’s design for the perfect self-replicating human.

Terrific performances abound in this fast-moving, futuristic update of the thrilling adventure tales of yesteryear, with an unmissable supporting turn from a cigar-chomping Sterling Hayden.
