___________________________________________

Jimbo Berkey's site -- Free Classic Movies — contains these personal recollections about Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet, along with some nice pictures and a link to watch it or download it!
_____________________________________________________

In August of 1965 I was a thirteen year old with visions of an unlimited future. Our President Kennedy had been killed a couple of years earlier, but his vision to explore outer space was still alive, and a young boy's imagination had no bounds. Anything was possible.

There could be worlds like ours out there in space just waiting for us to find them.

__

On March 18, 1965 the Soviets sent a two man spacecraft into earth orbit and one of the astronauts left the ship for the world's first spacewalk. A week later on March 23 the U.S. sent Gus Grissom and John Young into space in Gemini 3.

Then on June 3, 1965 aboard Gemini 4, astronaut Edward White II performs the first American spacewalk. The whole world was watching this amazing race to conquer outer space.

A little over a month later, on August 1, 1965, Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet hit movie theaters all over America.

__

Of course, in those days my preacher father wouldn't allow me to go to the movies, so I never saw this adventure on the big screen when I was thirteen. But I can still call up that thirteen year old and watch the movie with his eyes, and that is a very fun thing to do on a quiet, rainy afternoon.

__

If you watch this movie with 2012 eyes it is a totally silly view of the future. But with 1965 eyes this is an edge-of-your-seat adventure into unknown worlds, where all things are possible!

So pop your white kernel popcorn and drizzle on plenty of warm melted butter, and don't forget your 1965 mindset when you sit down to watch this vision into the year 2020 and the exploration of Venus.

__

The plot and the special effects are completely ridiculous . . . and yet I enjoyed every second of the movie. In 1965 this was our brave peek into the year 2020, and what might have been our future. Are men from Mars and women from Venus?

__

The last minutes of this adventure in space will at least clear up the Venus part, oh Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!

Would you believe this is the best picture of John the robot from this movie I could find? Hopefully somebody can find a few better ones.





It still amazes me that they made two Americanized versions of this Russian movie. WTBS (now TBS) was just a local station in Atlanta back in 1972 when they aired both versions a few days apart, and I thought I was going nuts because of the differences in the films! Shocked

Did you try under the original title Planeta Bur?

At not only Google but Photobucket?

Nice shot! Thanks, BDT. Very Happy

I worked on the brightness, contrast, and color a little.



And I found a better version of my original picture, too.
Very Happy

I made a quick check of the picture quality of this version of Planeta Bur and I believe it's the best I've ever seen!

Enjoy! (Don't forget to turn on CC.) Cool
