Did You Know?


Sixteen months before the movie's release, on June 28, 1965, the Pan Am Boeing 707 (registration: N761PA) that Jeffrey Hunter is seen leaving from during the opening credits had an engine explode just after taking off from San Francisco. The uncontained engine explosion caused a fire, a fuel tank explosion, and a one wing partially separated. The plane made an emergency landing at Travis Air Force Base and there were no injuries.

Dimension 5...lots of familiar faces in different spy angle
14 December 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I just pulled out my copy of Dimension 5 the other night and looked at it....as with other United Pictures films it was filled with B actors in starring roles, Jeffrey Hunter, France Nuyen, Donald Woods and Harold "OddJob" Sakata. B plot that doesn't make you think much but it kept the pace going. Many of the United Pictures films were quick paced, "Castle Of Evil", "Destination Inner Space" , "Panic In the City, "Money Jungle" and "The Destructors" so if you get a chance to get any of these, they are good for any sci-fi buff's collection...not the top of the heap but not as bad as things like Astro Zombies. Other familiar faces were Kam Tong who was "Hey Boy" In "Have Gun Will Travel", Deanna Lund who went on to be in "Land Of The Giants", Robert Ito who was in "Quincy ME"
