Arthur C. Clarke’s 1953 novel CHILDHOOD’S END has been regarded as a science-fiction classic for six decades now. For about the same amount of time, it has been regarded as unfilmable, even though Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic adaptation of another of Clarke’s novels, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, has received near-universal acclaim and despite the fact that CHILDHOOD’S themes of an alien race arriving on Earth with tangible benefits (an end to war, disease and poverty) but dubious motives have been disseminated throughout countless other books, films and TV series.
