Trivia

This movie is later edited and dubbed as "Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet", released in the US in 1965. This movie (and the Russian inserts) were in turn used to create "Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women" (1968) See more »

Alternate Versions

Three years after this film was released in the United States in a edited and dubbed version as "Voyage to a Prehistoric Planet" (1965), the dubbed Russion footage was agained re-edited by director Peter Bogdanovich and released as "Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women" (1968). For this second U.S. version, the American insert shots of Basil Rathbone and Faith Domergue were removed and new insert shots featuring Mamie Van Doren and other actresses (as inhabitants of Venus) were added. Bogdanovich also did the narration as if he were one of the Cosmonauts telling the story in flashback. The famous shot of the Venusian reflected in the pool of water was also removed. See more »

not bad
6 October 2007 | by a666333See all my reviews

Not bad, not incredible like "Forbidden Planet" and not as colourful and tragic as "This Island Earth" and it is certainly not "Solaris". But we must give 60s Eastern bloc science fiction its due. None of it is bad. All of it respects the intelligence of the viewers and each manages to create effective atmospheres. The music and background sound were good. The robot and the "supercar" are dated but very good for the time. Naming the robot "John" is a bit of a dig at the West (one could just as easily see Westerners naming a robot Ivan or Igor). The robot is given a Western name while the crew are all self actualized socialist men except for the woman cosmonaut who is given the traditional role of minding the mothership and lamenting over the fate of the men who are off exploring the planet. If that and the song are the social commentary then it could have been much worse.
