Throwback Thursday: the trailer for the original “Westworld” (1973)!

Today’s Throwback Thursday is something that I don’t actually remember — the trailer for 1973’s “Westworld” was a bit before my time.  But this was too good not to share.  (I’ve been on a weird “Westworld” kick lately — probably because I recently happened across this quite promising trailer for the brilliant HBO remake’s third season.) 

It’s funny seeing the same plot setup and motifs for the campy-looking original film (which was, surprisingly, written and directed by Michael Crichton).  I must say that Yul Brynner looks like he made a pretty decent bad guy, though.
