On This Day: Irwin Allen

On this day in 1916 Irwin Allen was born in New York City, and 60’s television SF was set on a collision course with awesome!

From 1964 to 1970, Irwin Allen was TV science fiction. From the ‘space family Robinson’ high-camp of Lost in Space, via the era-spanning adventures of The Time Tunnel, to the oversized-prop-of-the-week in Land of the Giants, Irwin Allen had young boys and girls around the world glued to their TV sets for that week’s instalment of action and adventure.




Happy 99th Birthday, Irwin Allen!
