Saturn 3(1980)
Directors: Stanley Donen
Cast: Farrah Fawcett, Kirk Douglas, Harvey Keitel
Genre: Sci Fi

About Farah Fawcett in various stages of undress, and her aging lover, scientist Kirk Douglas, who doesn't want to go back to Earth...And about Harvey Keitel who behaves like a robot and builds an 8 foot tall, killer psycho robot. Both Keitel and the robot have the hots for Farrah. Everybody has the hots for Farrah!...in this low budget Sci-Fi who's main claim to fame is the former Charlies Angels star and an aging Kirk Douglas.

In one of the funniest scenes, Farrah pulls the hair of an enraged Kirk Douglas trying to stop him...Douglas turns and makes a face that has to be seen to be believed.

This is bad sci fi! the sets are mediocre and look like they're in the studio. The story makes no sense and no one can act...and yet it's kind of fun, in a bad way. There really isn't much of a story, it's about two people on an asteroid orbiting Saturn who grow food for a starving Earth. Why is there only two people producing the much needed food and why station them at Saturn? Who knows? who cares? Along comes a murderer who steals a ship to build a killer robot on the food base and that makes the story.

A young Harvey Keitel faces off against Hector, the 8 foot tall robot with an organic brain, that has been programmed from Keitel's brain. Problem is Keitel is bonkers.

From the deleted 'blue dreamers' scene in which Farrah takes a Earth narcotic giving to her by Keitel...she has some wild dreams.

There was some unintentional funny moments in the film, and the dead pan acting made me wonder if they all weren't replicants
