This is one of those flicks you find by accident. You see a few familiar names in the cast, notice the early date, then rent it on a whim. And if you're like me, you say to yourself, "Good choice." A space film without all the invasion drama. This dealt with actual exploration. And unlike a lot of sci-fi, seemed to take it seriously.
Mary Tyler Moore in an early role, and she looked good. The talent was blossoming.
Bronson played his usual strong, weary type. He never had a prayer as a sex symbol, but he was underrated as an actor.
This is in need of reviving.
