Did You Know?

Trivia:
Director Edward Bernds sought first Sterling Hayden and then Frank Lovejoy. Producer Richard Heermance eventually hired Hugh Marlowe, who asked for only a quarter of the other actors' salaries. According to Bernds, Marlowe was often lazy and unprepared.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: When the men encounter the giant spider, it lands on Herb Ellis, and John Borden fires three rounds at it. Herb kicks it off and Borden then assists Dr. Galbraithe cut Henry Jaffe out of the web. Another spider appears and Borden fires five more shots at it, for a total of eight shots in all. Yet the revolver he used, a Smith & Wesson Military & Police only held six rounds and there was not enough time to reload.See more »

Desptie it's hokeyness, this is good 50s scf-fi fare., 15 November 1998
Author: bux from Tecumseh ok

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.
