Quotes

Carol Stafford: [as Terris is showing off the conveniences of a Martian apartment] What I want to see is the kitchen.
Terris: The kitchen?
Carol Stafford: Yes, where food is prepared.
Terris: Oh, we don't have kitchens. We call it the food laboratory, and we have a large one for each district. You order your food. It is delivered ready to be served.
Carol Stafford: This is a woman's paradise.
Terris: As a matter of fact, I assumed you might be hungry and ordered some things for you. They should be here by now.

Rockets, miniskirts, and cinecolor!
3 January 2003 | by (St. George, Utah) – See all my reviews

I agree with the all the POSITIVE comments on this unique little blast-from-the-past. "Flight to Mars" is a very enjoyable movie, despite it's limitations.

Beware, however, of the new DVD of "Flight to Mars". It is NOT derived from the same print as the prerecorded videotape that came out several years ago. The DVD print is riddled with scratches, and several scenes are ruined by numerous missing pieces of film!

We can only hope that a new DVD -- transferred from a BETTER print -- is released in the next few years. Meanwhile, please take my advice and watch the videotape. You'll thank me later.
