Dramatic Effects Never Before Equalled – Or Even Imagined!

From a space wheel 500 miles above the Earth, commander Samuel Merritt (Walter Brooke) and his men (including Eric Fleming and Benson Fong) construct a sleek rocket, then receive orders providing their new craft’s destination: Mars!

Five-time Oscar Winner George Pal (The War of the Worlds) produced this adventure rooted in the ’50s understanding of space exploration… and heightened by the awareness that no matter how advanced science becomes, human weaknesses remain.
