(1961) Dean Fredericks, Coleen Gray, Dolores Faith, Anthony Dexter, Francis X Bushman, Richcard Kiel. There is something ultimately likable about this underrated sci-fi B-opus. Astronaut Fredericks is stranded on a “phantom” planetoid. There he finds a race of miniature people menaced by a fleet of marauding alien monsters who attack in their flaming spaceships. This film is loaded with space opera with many outer space sequences, highlighted by a big space battle. The pre-title sequence and opening credits are unforgettable! Look for Richard Kiel as a beastly alien. A terrific stock sci-fi music score enhances the goings-on. From a top 35mm original print.
