III. Tidbits/Things to Discuss

- First ever million dollar movie shot in Britain.
- A lot of critics said the Wells' book had too much of it based on class whereas the movie was criticized for not having enough discussion about class.
- The novel was published in 1933, fifteen years after World War I and six years before Germany's invasion of Poland and two years after the Japanese invasion of Manchuria. Britain wouldn't enter the World War II until 1939.
- Our thoughts on the movie?
- Was HG Wells a Nostradamus of his time?
- While the word was around and used prior to this movie, did this movie change the way we look at zombies and bring on the concept of the Romero zombie?
