Synopsis

Journey to the Seventh Planet
Travelling by spaceship to the planet Uranus in year 2010, a group of astronauts are confronted with a mysterious being who resembles a brain but is "thousands of times more powerful," a bevy of pretty girls whom they may or may not have loved in a previous life, and, of course, the inevitable monster, a gargantuan rat. Made by the same people who gave the world Reptilicus (1961), screenwriter Ib Melchior and American scholck-producer Sidney Pink, this endearingly silly sci-fi movie was filmed in Denmark with a largely Danish cast. Hollywood actor John Agar and Greta Thyssen -- a former Miss Denmark who had doubled for Marilyn Monroe and appeared opposite The Three Stooges -- added a bit of box-office value to the otherwise mundane proceedings. Apparently filmed in English, the Danish actors speak their lines with utmost care and deliberation, presumably to make it easier for dubbing purposes. Carl Ottosen, who was hilariously inept in Reptilicus, hams it up with abandonment this time around as well. Rushing onto the cardboard set with dire news to report, Ottosen stops dead in his tracks, takes a deep breath, and delivers his dialogue ve-ry slow-ly and with much care. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
