I LOVE zat queen!

"Watching "Queen of Outer Space" is akin to watching a 1957 Miss World contest while on hallucinogens. Plot summary: Earthmen's rocket is knocked off course by a mysterious "death beam", where it lands on Venus, which is populated solely by women. The women wear mini-skirted tunics, with the exception of "Queen Iliana", who dresses like an evil, masked Auntie Mame, and "Tolleia", beautiful scientist and rebel leader, played by gorgeous Hungarian Zsa Zsa Gabor, in a series of glamorous gowns. Zsa Zsa is carefully "posed" in every shot, particularly her long-shots, where her leg is "artfully" protruding from the thigh-length slits in her gowns. Tolleia and many other man-hungry females secretly oppose the man-hating, pizza-faced queen (MEN were responsible for her radiation-burned face beneath her mask). Tolleia utters the famous line, "I hate her--I HATE zat queen!" The Earthmen, together with Tolleia and her followers, tamper with Queen Iliana's "Beta Disintegrator", with which she plans to destroy Earth. It blows up, reducing her to a charred mannequin, and Tolleia is proclaimed the new queen. This film is irresistibly enjoyable, from its kitschy sets (The queen's palace looks like a cross between a burlesque theater and a leftover set from "What's My Line?"), to the hubba-hubba women's costumes, to the men's costumes, evidently leftovers from "Forbidden Planet". Evidently, someone at Allied Artists had access to MGM's wardrobe department! Some of Anne Francis' "Forbidden Planet" costumes are worn by Lisa Davis, who plays one of Zsa Zsa's compatriots. The silly dialogue, ridiculous sound effects, and a paper-mache giant beetle add to the general hilarity of this comic-book version of the battle of the sexes. Needless to say, this film has an enormous gay following. How could it not? Zsa Zsa writes in her book, "One Lifetime is Not Enough", that her line, "I hate zat queen", gets big laughs from her many gay friends. The lady is extremely entertaining. I may also add to the unitiated that Zsa Zsa was at the peak of her beauty in this film. It's no wonder she had all the men in a spin. You can't accuse her of not having a sense of humor, and she's certainly NEVER dull!"
Fantastic cult classic

"QUEEN OF OUTER SPACE is a schlocky piece of hokum that's so bad, it's good!A group of astronaughts led by Eric Fleming (from "Rawhide") crash-land on the planet Venus, which is entirely ruled by women! Venus is governed by a masked Queen (Laurie Mitchell), who rules with an iron fist.When poor Eric is called on to seduce the Queen, he unmasks her to find a pock-faced old bat, who despises men. The sexy scientist (Zsa Zsa Gabor) and her two comrades decide to revolt and stop the Queen from her diabolical plan to destroy the Earth with her Beta Disintegrator.With Lisa Davis, QUEEN OF OUTER SPACE was so poorly made that they had to borrow sets and costumes from other B-movies like FLIGHT TO MARS, FORBIDDEN PLANET and WORLD WITHOUT END.A must-have for all cult and B-movie lovers!"
Women Rule In Outer Space

"When a spaceship from Earth has technical problems, the crew is forced to make an emergency landing on Venus. They salvage equipment from the wrecked ship and set up a camp to ponder their fate. During the night, the astronauts are awoken by miniskirted Amazon women, who order them to "bachino", which means "move it" in Venusian. Next, they meet the fashionably attired Zsa Zsa Gabor who becomes the crew's ally. She tells them that every man on Venus has been imprisoned on another planet by the mysterious "Masked Queen". The Queen's hatred of men is quite perplexing. She wants to be loved, yet she refuses the advances of one of the crewmates she so obviously desires. The suspense is overwhelming, and it keeps building until the end. Rarely has Hollywood produced such a magnificent film that has been so vastly underrated since it's release."
From Hungarian Beauty Queen to Outer Space Queen

"I consider this movie one of the best "camp classics" out there, starring, Zsa Zsa Gabor. If you really love this Beverly Hills, cop slapper, and ex convict, she puts in, one of her best 'bad ' performances ever. The whole premise of the movie is that a space crew from the U.S.A goes on a space mission, and somehow crash lands on the planet Venus. They all realize that they are ok and can even breathe the air on this planet without space suits. They are taken as prisoners by the amazon women guards. (no affiliation with this company) They are then taken to the Queen of the planet and then realize that they are the only men on the whole planet ! OH MY ! (get it, planet Venus, all women ) Seems that they had trouble before when the planet was inhabited by men, so the queen got rid of them, or as Zsa Zsa says ......." all man were sent to the prison colony planet" You just gotta love her way with the English language. Of course there is the mysterious Queen, you see, she wears a mask, and actually as the movie progresses the masks get even more elaborate, to match her outfits! The reason being that, she is so absolutely beautiful that she has to cover her beauty so as not to intimidate the other women ............(Yeah right) Well the queen starts to fall in love with the commander, and she is willing to spare his life, if he rules the planet with her, but not the lives of his crew, well, he will have none of that! Of course he is curious about her beauty , and gets a bit nosey, so she gets upset, and decides to kill them all, but not before she destroys the planet Earth with her deadly ray gun beam that they have built. It actually looks like a big refrigerator box with colored xmas lites, like the kind of creations you made when you were a little kid. Well Zsa Zsa finds out, and since she has moves on the commander too, She really doesn't like the queen herself, as she says in the best line in the movie " I hieght that Kuuuuuveeeeeen ! " She plans on overthrowing the queen and saving the whole crew. She gets her girls together, and ties up the queen and takes her mask, and makes everyone think she is the queen herself ......(all these queens! ) but Zsa Zsa gets found out and they all have to escape. The chase scene is the best! While sneaking through the jungle, which is just house plants painted in neon colors, you notice after a while that it's just the same wall of plants over and over again, they're not going anywhere except from one end of the sound stage to the next. I won't say how the movie ends, but there is a power struggle within the ranks. What I didn't get was, how come all the women had on chiffon miniskirt outfits, and Zsa Zsa had floor length creations with slits on the sides? She still was very gorgeous at this time, but she was rather, how would you say ? Voluptous Zaftig, Porcine ? Dahlings, rush to buy this movie, put on your best chiffon, couture outfit, diamonds, fur and a big bowl of greasy buttery popcorn, and you to, can be Zsa Zsa, or "The Queen of Outer Space""
