This is the second of three films in producer Ivan Tors' "OSI" series. The scientists are taken to the "Snake Mountain Proving Grounds, operated by the Office of Scientific Investigation," according to Dr. Dryden. Dr. Stanton's desk nameplate indicates he is "Chief of Investigations." See more »
When Lockwood panics in the rocket and begins to climb out of his seat, the film is run in slow motion to give the illusion of weightlessness. In these scenes, Lockwood's dialogue, even his screams, are all clearly looped in post-production, as his mouth is closed throughout almost all of these scenes even as he's heard speaking. See more »
The story concerns the selection and training of three men who are to pilot spacecraft in pursuit of meteorites. Of course there is all the drama and love interest one would expect along the way, but this picture gives us a chance to see the "cutting edge" technology of the 50s space programs. The story moves along swiftly and the cast is first rate. There is also a great title song. Watch this one if you can find it!
