    From Tysto commentaries:

    Yul Brynner is a pre-Terminator Terminator that absolutely will not stop until you are he is dead in Michael Crichton’s 1973 pre-Jurassic Park Jurassic Park: Westworld. The Doctor from The Speakeasy podcast is back again as my guest to dismantle the film as a cautionary tale and as an advertisement for guilt-free sex tourism. We ponder the incredible danger inherent in a theme park where people are supposed to get into bar fights and sword fights with robots. We guess at the social hierarchy of technicians. And we speculate as to what would happen if James Brolin was the one in jail and nerdy lawyer Richard Benjamin was trying to get him out.
