Trivia

Goofs

The men all agree that they must be on an asteroid. Space service personnel would never even consider such an absurd hypothesis, as they would know that an asteroid cannot support any kind of atmosphere, nor can it have Earth-like gravity. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] Her name is the Arrow One. She represents four and a half years of planning, preparation, and training, and a thousand years of science and mathematics, and the projected dreams and hopes of not only a nation but a world. She is the first manned aircraft into space. And this is the countdown, the last five seconds before man shot an arrow into the air.

Where It Lands I Know Not Where
25 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Dewey Martin, Edward Binns, and Ted Otis play three astronauts whose experimental spaceship Arrow One crash lands on an unknown landscape where they find themselves in an increasing desperate fight for survival, as both food and especially water start to run low, forcing one of the less-than-ethical astronauts to resort to subterfuge and murder in order to increase his chance for survival, but what none of them know is how tragically close to civilization they have been all along... Though hardly surprising, this is still a memorable and effective tale which has certain similarities to later film classic "Planet Of The Apes"
