Back in the early seventies, I caught some "movie" on the NY Channel 5 (don't remember the call letters). It felt like it should have been on PBS - as it was definitely unusual. But I, not being a movie person, have absolutely NO idea what it was, even though I remember parts to this day.
I'd say it was B&W - but then, that's the only TV we had, so who knows The filming was very much more like a play than a movie - and it felt sci-fi'ish, though, it looked "modern day." (OK, my memory may be fading...)
There was a group of "older" people who had been sent to an island to live (and I don't remember if it was because they were older or because they were all artists of some sort.) The state was expected to come to "put them down" (my term) because of their old age, but they chose suicide.
That's all I remember - does ANYONE know this play/movie? If ANYONE can figure it out, I'd think it would be this crowd!! Is it based on Huxley or Kafka? Please help!! THANKS!!!
