An alumnus of the class of 1975 nominates The Twist of the Tool, "a 20 min movie where Kirk and Spock land at MIT and meet [drumroll] The Director. He unleashes The Beast and Godzilla on them while they try to rescue Coedda and the other MIT students from becoming nerds.

"Filmed in 1975 with a cast of dozens from Baker House and East Campus. It was shown for many years as a short at MIT movies.

"This was the first time a video game (Space War) was used to introduce a movie."

  • This was a film class project, and they got an A. Great casting – you had to know the folks involved, but some of them were bang on and others were a great satire.
