Twentieth (20th) Century-Fox Film Corporation
"An all-star cast of veteran actors including Don Ameche, Hume Cronyn, Jack Gilford, Maureen Stapleton, Jessica Tandy and Gwen Verdon, light up the screen in this smash hit about a group of senior citizens given a second chance at being young. Still quite active though a bit stiff with age, they've been relegated to an old age home in Florida. Here they will live out their remaining days with bingo, shuffleboard and assorted aches and pains, but for the arrival of the Antareans, advanced beings from another planet who have returned to Earth to complete a mission begun centuries ago. The aliens' presence brings adolescent vigor to the aging earthlings, but finally both groups are faced with crucial decisions that will mean the difference between life and death for themselves and those they love... An insightful, sparkling story of youth, old age, and how people choose to live their lives, Cocoon is a moving tribute to the human spirit." [description taken from cassette box]
