Episode #73

Columbia Pictures Corporation released Starman on December 14, 1984. John Carpenter directed the film starring Jeff Bridges, Karen Allen, and Charles Martin Smith.

‘Starman’ Plot Synopsis

Starman begins when the military shoots down an alien spacecraft over Wisconsin. The alien pilot escapes and wanders to a remote cabin of a distraught young widow. There it clones itself into the form of her recently deceased husband before coercing the shell-shocked woman to drive him to a pickup point hundreds of miles away in Arizona. If she doesn’t, he’ll die. While she agrees, the government is hot on their trail; intent on seizing him, dead or alive. En route, Jenny turns from captive to captivated as the alien re-awakens her humanity, and she falls in love with him.
