In the spirit of Halloween I'd like to share a link to an old "made for TV movie" from 1976 called "The Tenth Level".
It stars William Shatner in one of his numerous roles after his duty as "James T. Kirk" of Star Trek fame. Also starring is Ossie Davis, Lynn Carlin and, as far as I know in his very first appearance on TV, a very young John Travolta.
The movie is about the famous Milgram Experiment. Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram tricked volunteers into a fake memory test - but it was actually a study into Obedience to Authority. The volunteers were instructed to ask test subjects a series of questions. Wrong answers resulted in an electric shock given to the subject by the volunteer - but with each wrong answer the voltage increased!
Question . . . how far along would the volunteers go in the real experiment? Would they actually zap subjects with a lethal voltage just because the experiment required it?
In the TV-movie "The Tenth Level" William Shatner plays Stanley Milgram after the experiment land him before a Board of Ethics hearing at Yale.
These YouTube clips from OtterVomit are very rare. The Tenth Level was recorded on videotape by CBS on location at Yale and has never been released as a DVD set.
Here's Part 1 and you can search out the rest on YouTube if you're interested.
The Eldorado is dead. Long live the Eldorado.
