Remember when this was made!
6 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You have to watch this film remembering it was made in 50's. Another reviewer has written about this film as if it was same level as the worst of the propaganda films every made. Which is pure rubbish. There are religious references in the film, but this will not harm anyone. Especially since no one should watch it as accurate source of science information. In fact the values are all thats left as a message in this film. That and the pure entertainment value of watching something that shows how much we misunderstood astronomy, and science at the time. See the film, enjoy the Mr Sun character, and lighten up.
