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 »
In the film's first minutes, two crews race through the desert to recover equipment from a rocket that has landed. One is in a truck pulling a trailer, and the trailer has a big black box in it. When the truck and trailer runs over plants and bumps, the trailer bounces around, and we see in a quick shot that the big black box is thrown out of the trailer. But it is still in the trailer in later shots, such as on reaching the landing site. Also a vehicle carrying electronic equipment that more than likely contained vacuum tubes before the invention of solid-state electrics would not be driven in such a reckless manner with unsecured cargo in the trailer.

Good afternoon gentlemen. I trust you had a pleasant trip. I'm Dr. Dryden. Unfortunately, the nature of my doctorate will have to remain a secret for a few days.

Captures wonder and awe of the space age. Good movie.
The film manages to capture the wonder and awe of the space age you may have felt as a teenager in the 1950s. It comes through clearly with the superb cast in the movie (Richard Carlson is one of my favorites in this genre). And even though some people don't like the stock footage used, I enjoyed it. With the interaction of characters, and even love interest in the film, the movie takes you to another time and place. About the only the missing from this movie that usually draws me to these films was the usual flying saucer/UFO kind of connection. But even without that, I really enjoyed this movie. I would have loved to have grown up in that era. See it if you get the chance.
