dc.description.abstract This paper will explain some of the basic traits of populist comedies. It will explain why populism is so often mixed with other genres, specifically science fiction. Each chapter will then be dedicated to one of three science fiction films, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Star Wars, and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Specific examples and scenes will be cited from each film to show populist traits. The three chapters will help to better explain populism as well as the impact it has had on science fiction.
