The Final Frontier contains the following ten films....
Assignment: Outer Space
A high-camp Italian space opera centered on a band of astronauts who are attempting to avert a deadly radiation disaster which is threatening to wipe out civilization as we know it. Featuring Gabriella Farinon and Rik Van Nutter.
1960 - Color - 79 mins.
This feature length space adventure is distilled from the 13-chapter serial Flash Gordon, and features Buster Crabbe in his first of three appearances as the quintessential space hero. This was the first and best of the three Flash Gordon serials based on the comic strip by Alex Raymond.
1936 Black & White - 72 mins.
Teenagers From Outer Space
Aliens arrive on earth looking for a breeding ground for their monstrous Gargons (actually lobsters), which are raised for food. Knowing that the Gargons will spell doom for mankind, Derek, one of the titular space teens, tries to convince his shipmates to spare the human race. Will Derek be able to defeat his fellow aliens and stop the earth from becoming a giant lobster farm?
1959 - Black & White - 86 mins.
The Phantom Planet
A cross between Gulliver's Travels and Buck Rogers set in the far-flung future year of 1980. Two spaceships from earth have gone missing and are believed to have crashed into a previously unknown planet where the laws of physics are treated more like suggestions than actual laws, but that's half the fun.
1961 - Black & White - 82 mins.
The Day The Sky Exploded
A spaceship from earth crashes into the sun, sending a swarm of meteors toward earth. Tidal waves and climatic changes across the globe may spell doom for the human race, unless the major world powers can be convinced to combine their atomic arsenals to destroy the meteors.
1958 - Black & White - 82 mins.
Convinced that humanity is going to destroy itself, Dr. Jeremiah Morley launches an expedition to find a subterranean haven for mankind. Morley's team faces all manner of perils as they set out in a drilling vehicle for the center of the earth.
1951 - Black & White - 73 mins.
Phantom From Space
An alien space craft crash lands near a remote California observatory. The lone passenger, under pursuit by government agents, discards his spacesuit, revealing that he is completely invisible.
1953 - Black & White - 72 mins.
Crash Of The Moons
This feature-length film is culled from three episodes of the classic science fiction TV series Rocky Jones, Space Ranger. Two planets are headed for collision, and Rocky Jones and his team race to prevent the catastrophe.
1953 - Black & White - 72 mins.
Warning From Space
A race of aliens shaped like giant muppet starfish have come to warn us that a rogue planet is on a collision course with earth. As the planet approaches, its gravity wreaks all sorts of havoc with weather and tides. Earth scientists join forces with the five-pointed alien visitors in hopes of saving the world.
1955 - Color - 87 mins.
The Amazing Transparent Man
Joey Faust, an expert safe cracker, is sprung from prison by Major Paul Krenner and is provided with a unique opportunity. Krenner has developed a potion for invisibility which he uses on Faust so he can steal radioactive materials that will allow Krenner to create an invisible army.
1960 - Black & White - 58 mins.

The Final Affront(ier)

"Is it at all possible that in the end THE FINAL FRONTIER is simply mediocrity? Judging by the 10 clunkers in this DVD set, it just may be. Among the slim pickings here are two spaghetti sci-fi stinkers ("Space Men" and "The Day the Sky Exploded"), an early Japanese import that's running on 3-cylinders ("Warning From Space") and a no-budget example from the Golden Age of Sillyvision ("Rocky Jones").
What's leftover are mostly-forgotten drive-in movie stuff. This collection may only be for hardcore sci-fi fans, viewers of MST3K and those in need of a good nap.
You say you want MORE of these? Well then-- BRENTWOOD's GALACTICA 10 Movie Pack is just what you're looking for!
