Astronauts from Earth are sent on a mission to explore an unknown planet within the boundries of the sun, but not electricity. Dated but with some nice special effects and colorful score by Barry Gray. The "twist-ending" is quite memorable.
The review of this Movie prepared by Bill Casey
A planet has been discovered which shares the same orbit as Earth but is on the opposite side of the sun. The European Space Exploration Council sends out American Glenn Ross (Thinnes) and British John Kane (Ian Hendry -- he played Patrick McNee's partner on "The Avengers" before any of the women) to explore it. Kane is thrown into a coma after a disastrous crash landing, but Ross -- encountering the Council and his wife -- realizes they've returned to Earth. Or have they? This 1969 film bored me when I was 11; it features silly sets, "modernistic" cars, ticker tape, and stiff 1960s acting (particularly the brand Thinnes offered in his TV series "The Invaders"). Its anachronisms might be worth a few laughs now.
