Three American astronauts are on the first manned mission to Venus, and when they arrive, they find the planet to be inhabited solely by women with high heels and short dresses. Unfortunately, they are immediately imprisoned, for the queen who rules Venus hates men... Suspecting the astronauts to be spies, she now plans to destroy the Earth. So now it's up to the three men (and some friendly Venusians) to overthrow the wicked queen and save the Earth. Written by

One of the women who initially captures the crew is a blonde wearing a chartreuse outfit. When these guards are shown leading the crew through a hallway as other women look on, this same blonde is shown in close-up among the spectators, watching the prisoners being escorted by, among others, herself -- still visible as one of the guards.

1. This is finally out on DVD, and looks great in all it's Cinemascope and color-saturated glory! 2. Zsa Zsa is the "most intelligent scientist on Venus". Marvel at her ability to carry out lab experiments while wearing a gauzy peignoir. She's tops at flower arrangement also. 3.Check out Joi Lansing's amazing 50's "space outfit" in her all too brief scene before the main titles appear...absolutely fabulous, and she's an Earthling! 4. Laurie Mitchell's makeup under the mask appears to be Technicolor oatmeal. Or maybe it's spackle. 5. Wonder at the total square that is Eric Fleming's head. This guy has the most aggressive jawline in all of film history and it's no special effect. 6. The industrious/cheap use of sets, props, and costumes from "Forbidden Planet", "World Without End", and "Flight to Mars". I mean,really...they were just lying around! 7. How can you not love that giant spider/insect/piñata that's literally pushed out of it's hole onto an actor? It probably ended up in a dumpster, which is very, very sad. 8. Use the pause/frame feature on your DVD to slowly go through the climatic battle around the Beta Disentegrator. Not only can you see the awesome power of this cardboard weapon, but the participants of the battle are all laughing their heads off. 9. "I hate zat queen!". Where was Zsa Zsa's Oscar for delivering this line with such utter nonchalance? There is no justice in Hollywood.
Ultimate camp-fest from an era long gone, not to be missed by anyone!
