One of the better Soviet space travel films, STORM PLANET takes a trio of spaceships on an exploration of Venus, led by captain Ignatova. Only one ship lands on the planet, scouting the surface and eventually meeting a remarkably humanlike Venusian. Where this picture excels is in its

attention to atmosphere and set design. However, it's less pretentious than many similar films. There's also a fair amount of humor, mostly from a robot tagged "John" who has a penchant for losing control and playing old swing tunes. Roger Corman bought the US rights to this film, which then

showed up in a scissored version as VOYAGE TO A PREHISTORIC PLANET with Basil Rathbone and Faith Domergue, a TV release from Peter Bogdanovich and Curtis Harrington. Bogdanovich again chopped the film into oblivion (under the name Derek Thomas) in 1966 under the tag VOYAGE TO A PLANET OF

PREHISTORIC WOMEN. Poor Mr. Klushantsev.
