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 »

Dr. Paul Dryden:
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.

The movie was one of my favorites when I was gowing up. I was lucky enough to read the paperback book when it came out, & I was very excited when I heard there would be a movie. It is a classic in its way, showing the selection process for what is virtually an impossible task( Space travel depends on onbtaining a material found only in meteorites, so we must travel in space to get it so we can then travel in space...) There is the usual love-interest, but the most interesting character in the book/movie is played by Richard Carlson, as a logical detached scientist, who is lost in a kind of "Rapture of the Deep" in reaction to the reality of, and the sheer beauty of the stars. If you can find this movie --get it!!
