Goofs

A revolver is shown that has a blown barrel due to what was said to be lack of strength in the metal as well as too strong a propellant powder. If the metal in the gun was weak, the part to fail would have been in the cylinder and frame area, not the barrel. The most likely cause of the damage that was shown would have been an obstruction in the barrel. See more »

Desptie it's hokeyness, this is good 50s scf-fi fare.
15 November 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Patterned somewhat after H.G Wells novel "The Time Machine" and a fore-runner of "Planet of the Apes" (1968) This space-time travel story is better than it sounds. The astronauts are thrown forward in time but. actually it seems the opposite, as they return to a planet inhabited by cave-man like creatures-save a small group hiding out underground. The tight script and superior cast prop up this small budget picture, and the action moves it along so we don't have time to concentrate on it's short-falls. One of the better 'B' sci-fi flicks of the 50s.
