"Favourite Movie Set in Outer-space"
A very topical theme.... given that this week is the anniversary of
Yuri Gagarin's first journey into space.
Just a quick spin in a rocket around the globe was enough to kick off the space race.
I remember seeing this movie in my childhood... sat in front of the old Black and White TV... And some of the scenes frightened the willies out of me.
After this experience I was 5 or 6 years old I think
It was many years before I could watch a movie set in outer space again.
(I think it was Star Wars)
But imagine my amusement when searching for this movie and discovering the trailer to find that it was actually filmed in colour! For all these years I'd had only Black 'n White memories...The little mock up sets look so cute, the special effects made me giggle especially the laser guns.. and even the acting has it own flavour of melodrama and camp when seen through adult eyes.
To my amusement I also found the Theme Track which was released as a song...Not Quite a Bond chart topper or classic but a theme song never the less. All that 60's romance...
And I think it also helps to explain my later fascination with
Princess Presents for your entertainment...
And now.... for a little musical interlude...
Happy Movie Clip Wednesday....
