Did You Know?


Scene of X-15 landing is on 5 November 1959 when a small engine fire started and forced pilot Scott Crossfield to make an emergency landing on Rosamond Dry Lake. The X-15, not designed to land with fuel, came down with a heavy load of propellants and broke its back, grounding this particular X-15, ship #2 (56-6671), for three months. See more »


When the test pilot and his wife are driving back to the base in the jeep, the shot is flipped so the pilot is driving on the right side of the jeep. See more »

Ha! Saw ya move
1 February 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is one of only half a dozen or so episodes of the original The Outer Limits show that I've seen. It isn't the best of them, but it's not half bad. After a test flight goes awry, time appears to be standing still. The pilot and his wife try to work out what's happening, and how to return everything to normal. No, the math doesn't quite work out; still, this is a compelling concept, and the execution is pretty good, as well. Unfortunately, the patriarchal values of back then *really* shine through, meaning that the man is a ridiculous jerk to the woman, who, in turn, gets extremely upset("fixed" by slaps to the face) and is largely useless(as well as ignored by him, no matter the quality of her input). This is extremely grating on the nerves of anyone who does not agree with those norms, and in fact making the otherwise fine 51 minutes nearly intolerable. Adding to that is the loud, high pitched music, which was sadly that time's take on sci-fi score. The effects are convincing(yes, my summary was a joke), though you can clearly tell what is stock footage. I recommend this to fans of the genre; just beware of the male chauvinism in the tone. 6/10
