The Illustrated Man

Rod Steiger plays the tattoo-covered title role in this fascinating vision of doom and danger based on the classic short story collection by futurist Ray Bradbury. Robert Drivas portrays a good-natured drifter who can't tear his eyes from Steiger's freakish illustrations. And Claire Bloom is the mysterious seductress who created the "art" that curses its bearer - and comes to life in a nightmarish trio of tales. Two spoiled children turn playtime into slay time (from "The Veldt"). Shipwrecked astronauts wander across a planet cursed by "The Long Rain". And loving parents choose their children's fate when the end nears (from "The Last Night of the World").
