[Get a "Behind-the-Scenes" look with George Taylor and his collection of rare photos, making-of videos, cast & crew interviews, and book reviews.]
We like to feature movies that would never be made today because they have a charm that's irresistable for movie-lovers. To us, it's like an entire genre has disappeared and may never return. It's a really sad thought, especially when the methods used have produced excellent movies. One such movie is Jim Henson's Dark Crystal. Back in 1982, this dark fantasy came to audiences like no other film before or since. The idea of a serious story with a cast made up entirely of puppets was undoubtedly a huge gamble. Groundbreaking animatronics allowed the characters to portray their emotions realistically making it a success (of varying degrees). This week, we showcase Jim Henson and crew bringing the Skeksis (SkekSo) and Gelfling (Jen) to life.
