The Illustrated Man

1969 PG

Rod Steiger plays the titular character -- a man covered with tattoos -- in this adaptation of Ray Bradbury's tale. When a young drifter (Robert Drivas) encounters "the illustrated man," he can't take his eyes off the pictures on the man's torso. But staring at the designs takes the drifter smack-dab into the middle of the pictures -- in one instance, stranded on Venus, in another, on an African veldt and in the third, on the eve of Armageddon.
