Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy began as a novel by Douglas Adams, then was converted into an enormously popular BBC radio series. This 1981 British "movie" is comprised of scenes from the serialized TV version of Hitchhiker's Guide. Simon Jones stars as gormless Arthur Dent, who while clad in his bedclothes manages to escape the Earth's gravitational pull just before the Third Planet From the Sun is blown to bits. Ensconced in a strange space vessel festooned with all manner of confusing hardware, Dent finds that his life is dependent upon the instructions given by the cheery voice of the main computer--which may be loyal to the extraterrestrials who've obliterated the earth in order to make way for a galactic superhighway. The weekly Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was seen in the US over the HBO Cable service. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

PLEASE NOTE: Volume 1 contains the entire series, comprised of six episodes.
