When Rocky and Winky were traveling toward the Space Station to warn them of the "Atmosphere chain", they asked the Space Station's radio operator to call back the ship that had recently left. The radio operator indicated that they were out of radio range, yet Rocky was able to talk to them, supposedly from further away. See more »

This feature was re-edited from a two-part episode of the popular 1954 syndicated "Rocky Jones, Space Ranger" series, which lasted only one season because its sophisticated (for the time) special effects, sets and wardrobe requirements made it too expensive to show a profit. Fortunately the films survived (unlike the "Captain Video" kinescopes) to be available to students of the genre. Richard Crane was the perfect space captain, and Sally Mansfield as Vena Ray, Rocky's miniskirted assistant, makes sure the adult male interest level stays measurably acceptible. Alexander Laszlo's title theme is in 3/4 time, very unusual for a space opera, and it uses plenty of theremin.
