Entertainment Review
The article discusses the motion picture "Gog," directed by Herbert L. Strock and produced by Ivan Tors. The motion picture is basically a science fiction, pleasantly inventive variation on the chase formula of science fiction: the pursuit of monsters or forces from the outer reaches of fantasy, in order to stop them before they can destroy the earth. It reveals considerable apprehension about the future, as if scientific progress is inevitably accompanied by new enemies to combat, new emergencies needing ever greater straining toward total secrecy and total security.
