And......



It's Feeless Herman (Joan Shawlee) from The Abbot and Costello Show episode Hillary's Birthday!

What, Herr Sknaggs, no mention of Phil Foster staring rapturously at the screen?

I think this is a beautifully photographed movie, but I will have to agree, the commander of the ship going nuts, and Phil Foster kinda sunk it for me. This could have been a lot better movie!

I saw it at a kiddie matinee. They would show an old movie with a bunch of cartoons. A big bore. I don't even remember the captain cracking up. I kept thinking this ain't no kid's movie. Most of the time they showed cheap-jack no action swashbucklers until the sword fight at the end. And The Invisible Boy with Robbie the Robot. That looked like a masterpiece compared to the rest of their movies.

Does this have an astronaut that gets untethered from the main ship, and gets to go flying off into space (possibly with his helmet filled with blood)?  I ask this because in the middle 50s, I saw a double feature with THE WAR OF THE WORLDS and another sci fi movie.  For about 20 years, I had no idea which of the titles were, but I saw the WAR OF THE WORLDS and instantly recognized it as one of the movies I saw on that night.  The other movie, I still have no idea.  Which George Pal producing and Byron Haskins directing, I've got a feeling CONQUEST OF SPACE was the other movie, but I've never nailed it down.  I've got it on my bucket list.

I don't think it is Conquest of Space, but I could be wrong. Helmet filled with blood? Conquest of Space?

I read the TCM overview. One of the men is killed by a meteor while making repairs of the ship.

Blu, pretty sure it is CONQUEST you recall:



Check out Ross Martin, at about 49 min., and then after the commercials.

Thanks, Will.  I think CONQUEST OF SPACE is it the movie.  Man killed by a meteor shook my little remaining memory.  And we'll-I-just relate to the bad memory of blood.

Watch the entire sequence, blu.

Your visual memory is somewhat confirmed.
