At the end of a car chase, which is shot in broad daylight, the film cuts to a miniature of the car going off a model railroad-size road and steep embankment (with accompanying unnecessary sparking effects)and crashing at the bottom. The effect is shot taking place at night, despite the fact the preceding chase had just been on a sunlit day. When the scene cuts back from the model to a live scene of the actors investigating the wreck, it is also filmed as a night shot in order to match the previous miniature scene. See more »
"You helium head!" Quotable stuff, low-budget but endlessly entertaining 60's Italian Sci Fi....was the staple of 70's UHF "Evening Movies"-played a lot on the old Channel 27(Worcester, Mass.) 7PM evening"Early Show" movie in the mid 70's. Fortunately, they have secured a sacred place in the TCM vaults. It's wonderful to have Robert Osborne do such a terrific introduction to such a film (when hours before he may have been doing the same for CASABLANCA).
When I was young, the film was actually scary as hell in some parts, and now laughable in those same areas. Has a Jetsons-type air car chase that has to be seen to be believed. Tony Russell chews the scenery no end, and despite the inherent cheapness, you can't take your eyes off it.
The "Space Station Gamma" universe must have been a trademark of Ivan Reiner, Walter Manley and Bill Finger, because in 1968, the took their "universe" to Japan and continued it with the wonderful THE GREEN SLIME. Italian studios, I got the impression were really not that inventive with rubber monsters.
