Trivia

The film features actors who appeared in Ivan Tors' other "OSI" films, Gog and The Magnetic Monster. These included Richard Carlson, King Donovan, Herbert Marshall and Michael Fox; however the actors played different characters in each film. See more »

Goofs

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.

Dated, but well done 50s Sci-fi
4 June 2000 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

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!
