An AMAZING film given the year it came out-from a story by Stanislaw Lem, THE ASTRONAUTS... the story seems a little slow and stilted at first, but the ideas and the Special Effects are wonderful, including some of the sets showing the devastated surface of Venus as seen thru their 'chariot'. Maltin claims that a whole lot of this film was cut to be shown in the USA...would love to see a restored version...
