Wasn’t this a scene in “Logan’s Run”?

This is one of the fountains on Gustav Adolf’s Square in central Malmö. If you look carefully, you can just see the outline of the naked lady sculpture beneath the ice.

I’m not a meteorologist (nor do I play one on TV), so I’m kind of puzzled as to why the water in the base of the fountain (which is expansive and quite shallow) isn’t even frozen around the edges, and yet the sculpture is completely encased in ice. It must have something to do with the wind.

And you know the scene in “Logan’s Run” I’m talking about, right?  The one

in which Jenny Agutter and Michael York end up in an ice cave talking to a really shiney silver robot? The special effects are so terrible (even for 1976) that you can’t help but laugh.

But the thing that’s even less believable is that the two leads, who have arrived in the ice cave soaking wet, decide to trade their clothes for some animal skin blankets that just happen to be laying around. This would make perfect sense except that they change back into their could-not-possibly-be-dry-yet-clothes less than 5 minutes later! It’s SO patently obvious that ONLY reason the scene is there is to give the audience a peek at Jenny Agutter’s assets, if you know what I mean.


Feed my ego!
