More than 50 years have passed since This Island Earth first graced our screens and, of course, judged by current standards it doesn't really pass muster.But there is still much to enjoy – the movie fairly powers along in what is, these days, a short running time, everything is bright and colourful, Faith Domergue has gorgeous eyes, the effects (state of the art at the time) still hold up well, and the lesson to be learnt is still valid, notwithstanding the naiveté with which it is delivered.And all the above can be appreciated with an affectionate awareness of how much things have changed since then.The monster is downright clunky, but you can't have everything!

There he meets an old flame, Dr. Ruth Adams(Faith Domergue),and finds this journey is just a ruse. Others in the cast: Lance Fuller, Karl Ludwig, Robert Nichols, Les Sparks and Richard Deacon.
