William Redfield goes Mad on Mars
7 January 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Astronauts William Redford (as Bart), Leslie Nielsen (as Robbie), and Brian Keith (as Jack) celebrate landing on Mars with a party. Mr. Nielsen hands out the beer, Mr. Keith lights up a cigarette, and Mr. Redfield advises, "Less talk and more beer!" Neglecting his own advice, Redfield wonders how the planet can harbor plants but no animals. This is a good scientific observation. As the wind howls, the men search for minerals and discover Mars is rich in uranium.

Mr. Neilson, the pilot, thinks the three men will become millionaires. Keith gets a headache and starts to act edgy. "This place gives me the creeps," Redfield says, "I got the feeling I'm being watched!" He loses his lucky rabbit's foot and everyone gets very testy. However unlikely, this is a captivating story of space madness. The three actors do well with the assignment and the soundtrack music (Irving Robbin) is effective in helping to create the maddening mood.
