Footnotes

Billed as the first ‘space western’ and following hot on the heels of Stanley Kubrick’s “2001:A Space Odyssey” (1968), this film was an instant box-office flop. It also contains what must be a strong contender for the worst title song of all time. James Olson also starred in Hammer’s “Crescendo” (1969). Character actor Warren Mitchell has his biggest role for Hammer here, having appeared in “Hell is a City” (1959) and “The Curse of the Werewolf” (1961). His best-loved work is of course as loud-mouthed bigot Alf Garnett in Johnny Speight’s BBC TV comedy series “Till Death Us Do Part” and “In Sickness and Health”.
Catherina Von Schell (or, if you prefer, Catherine Schell) also appeared in the later Gerry Anderson series “Space 1999”, which bears a remarkable resemblance to this production. Her other films include the James Bond movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” (1969) and “The Return of the Pink Panther”.
Robert Tayman, who has a small part in this film, also appeared in Hammer’s “Vampire Circus” (1971), playing the vampire Count Mitterhaus.
