View Full Version : Looker...Underrated

Does WB have any intention of releasing the interesting and underrated Looker, which has a premise that is a little relevent today and features good performances by the late James Corburn, and Albert Finney. While not a great film, its certainly a worthwhile cult classic that deserves to be rediscovered.

And it was directed by Michael Creighton! An little-seen film(it flopped at the box office), would be nice to see on DVD. Also has Vanna White, prior to Wheel of Fortune.

Does anyone else have opinions on this film?

it's a very good film,fast paced and clever,i think the subject of this film was ahead of its time!
Michael Crichton has made others good films in the 70's until the mid-80's (WESTWORLD,COMA,THE FIRST GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY,RUNAWAY)
i'd like to see LOOKER in its original ratio 2:35 Cinemascope...

Same here. I'd love to see it in widescreen. I haven't seen this in years but loved it as a kid, especially that hypnotic light gun with its wooosh, your'e invisible effect. Very cool.
I'm surprised its not out yet. About a year ago Warners said they had no plans to release it. I hope they've changed their minds since then but who knows. With stars like Finney Coburn and Crichton attached, its baffling why they haven't touched it.

The only thing I can remember about this film was Susan Dey showing her tits. Is this the same LOOKER?

I love Looker! I've had the theme song in my head for years and years. "She's a looker, with a beautiful face, she's got it all, yeah, she's got it made!" Hahaha, I loved HBO when I was little.

That's mainly how I remember it...from cable as a child. I always liked Albert Finney and Coburn. I also remember Day getting naked...and James Coburn wearing a bow-tie the size of Guam.

I think it's a pretty good film as well......I have to say that Susan Dey looked hot in this. I also remember the song also entitled 'Looker' on the soundtrack that was qute catchy.
