While trying to create a frictionless surface for a space craft, some scientists travel beyond the Earth's atmosphere to obtain meteors and solve the problem of cosmic bombardment.
An extremely dated film that concentrates more on the dramatic events involving the characters than the science fiction elements. Included are several inserts of actual rocket flights.

"One US. astronaut pitted against all the odds beyond this earth!"
A tragic mission to Mars kills one of a two man crew, (West), while the other astronaut, (Mantee), is left to wander the barren landscape with only a monkey for company until his air supply runs out. Just as he believes he is going to die, he discovers that a strange rock gives off oxygen when burnt and he is able to continue his existence by finding food shelter and water. One day he meets a slave who has escaped from his alien captivity when they land to mine for minerals. Together the astronaut and the slave he names Friday, (Lundin), avoid recapture by the alien visitors and survive.
Despite the silly title this is an imaginative and intelligent science fiction movie filmed in Death Valley that closely follows Defoe's original novel. Only the poor spacecraft effects could have been improved.

An alien ship lands in Lapland's frozen wastes where a creature belonging to the aliens inside runs amok slautering animals and terrorising the local village. Scientist Frederick Wilson, (Burton), his assistant Erik Engstrom, (Gester), and his stowaway niece Diane, (Wilson), arrive to monitor the craft, but one is killed when he gets too curious while the giant creature destroys the science team's airplane after causing an avalanche. The creature then continues to attack, but saves Diane, (Wilson), for his alien masters. Torch bearing skiers chase the monster and set him alight, forcing the aliens to leave in their ship.
Jerry Warren took what little good there is in the original film and covers it up with science fiction mumbo jumbo narrated by John Carradine. Purchased in 1962 by Warren who added footage of Carradine and Burton as geologists and cause an avalanche that scares the giant monster away.
A boring and disjointed film with an impressive shaggy monster.
