Aired 3 times on Pittsburgh's CHILLER THEATER
2 July 2012 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Man in Outer Space" is a 1961 Czech production (a 1962 entry at the Cannes Film Festival) picked up by American International Pictures for their 60s television package, first appearing on Pittsburgh's CHILLER THEATER in 1966, with two more showings by 1972. A rarity in mort ways than one, as it's a sci fi comedy, plus the fact that the title character (Milos Kopecky) isn't actually IN outer space, accidentally blasting off a 1960s launchpad, and quickly returning to Earth, albeit 500 years into the future, AS (After Sputnik). The future world is a place without war or violence, with our hero taking full advantage of the many perks, until his bumbling attempt to romance the lovely Eve (Anita Kajlichova) fails miserably, leading him to make an abrupt exit back to his own century, aided by an occasionally invisible alien named Adam (Vit Olmer), who spends the entire film learning about humans. Other foreign titles acquired by AIP-TV include "Invisible Creature" (1960), "The Fabulous World of Jules Verne" (1958), "First Spaceship on Venus" (1960), "Assignment Outer Space" (1960), and "Voyage to the End of the Universe" (1963).
