      ... second of producer George Pal's classic string of iconic science fiction movies.
      He was the Cecille B DeMille of Sci-Fi!

      ... sign of the 'olden days' when it's too expensive to make color publicity prints of a Technicolor movie. Though I have been known to turn off the color of a movie when I know it looks better in black and white.

      ... the AV Kid finally showed up- with the trailer in HD!

      That was an awesome visual effects movie for the time and still stands up pretty well today.

      The pointier the tip of the rocket, the faster it goes

      I made simple CGI models of this rocket, Klaatu's saucer from The Day The Earth Stood Still and Space Cruiser C57D from Forbidden Planet, and it was always one of the most popular downloads on my website. I think a lot of CGI types grew up watching classics like this, and still love them.

      This is the vision of my dreams....which haven't changed much since the 50's obviously.

      Everything comes to a tip in movie science fiction, and everything explodes in adventure movies. In Danger 5, some Nazi nurses are pushed out of a blimp and the hero guards his face as they explode. Things coming to a point and explosions are TROPES, everybody!

      Just remember, explosions are louder in space because there's no air to get in the way!

      Definitely a lot more dramatic looking than Wylier/Bulmer's space arks. In the novel, the twin ships were fat cylinders designed for VTOL.
