Movie #1335 (#156 this year): The Phantom Planet(1961, William Marshall)

Got tired of the same old TCM stuff so I dipped back into the MillCreek Sci-Fi box for another loser. It looks like "Four Crown Productions" did spend a few $ on this one as the special effects are above average for a poverty row production. Unfortunately, it all goes for naught as the script is just a bunch of mumbo jumbo. The appearance of the Zolarite late in the film does add a few chuckles. Also of note, the people of the phantom planet control their gravity machine the same way that humans control their theramins.
