Queen of Outer Space

Most of the female characters in Queen of Outer Space look like they would be more at home on a Minsky runway than the Cape Canaveral launching pad, but Ben Schwalb's production [based on a story by Ben Hecht] is a good-natured attempt to put some honest sex into science-fiction.

Cast:
Zsa Zsa Gabor Eric Fleming Laurie Mitchell Paul Birch Patrick Waltz Barbara Darrow

Most of the female characters in Queen of Outer Space look like they would be more at home on a Minsky runway than the Cape Canaveral launching pad, but Ben Schwalb’s production [based on a story by Ben Hecht] is a good-natured attempt to put some honest sex into science-fiction.

The year is 1985, and Eric Fleming, Patrick Waltz and Dave Willock are US officers in charge of a space ship assigned to check on an American satellite space station. They are deflected from their course by mysterious energy rays from the planet Venus, where their ship is eventually wrecked. Taken prisoner by a malignant queen (Laurie Mitchell), they are about to be destroyed, when they are rescued by a pro-masculine group headed by Zsa Zsa Gabor.

The cast is predominantly feminine and attractively garbed in the brief raiment that appears to be customary on other planets. Gabor makes a handsome leading lady, romanced by Fleming and the others lend the necessary ingredients to their roles.
