Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” 
  Soylent Green is people…….
Answer: Soylent Green!

This 1973 horror/suspense film is set in the year 2022, in a world where there isn’t enough food to support the people on the planet? The film starred Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson and featured a supposedly plankton-based miracle nutritional supplement in answer to the food shortage. The supplement was really made of something quite different, something much more nefarious. The line was said by a horrified Charlton Heston, as the New York Police Detective who realized that the drug was not made of plankton at all, but was made from dead humans. Though the special effects in the movie can’t hold a shine to those possible in today’s movies, the sinister score and the acting by a solid cast of classic-era actors makes it a good one to check out.
