It is Patrick Allen, not George Sanders, who is the playboy.
Actors on the way down (George Sanders, Maurice Evans), an actor who never really had much of a career (Neil Connery--Sean's brother), and working actors treading water (Patrick Allen, Robert Flemyng).
The film is indeed a big snooze, with meager science-fiction trappings and a disinterested cast going through the motions.
Aliens kidnap skydivers to repopulate their plague-stricken planet. Theater owners probably had to kidnap patrons! Originally on a double bill with THE BLOOD ROSE, a French production advertised as 'the first sex- horror film.'
Shelagh Fraser ("Mrs. Thatcher") appears as Aunt Beru in STAR WARS.
