(1953) Reginald Tate, Isabel Dean, Hugh Kelly, Duncan Lamont. These are the only two surviving episodes of the famed British six-part mini-series. Professor Quatermass and his Experimental Rocket Group send a man into space. When the spacecraft returns to Earth they find, inexplicably, that only one of the crewmen is still on board. They can only wonder what has happened to the missing crewmen, because something “strange” has happened to the surviving astronaut. When the rocket is examined, it’s found that something organic attached itself to the hull while in outer space. Intelligent, yet creepy sci-fi that’s extremely well done. An must-have for all ‘50s sci-fi collectors. 67 min.
