The first feature film inspired by the British television series "Thunderbirds" which was created by the husband-and-wife team of Sylvia and Gerry Anderson (Sylvia also supplied the voice of Lady Penelope). Utilizing sophisticated marionettes shot in a process called "Supermarionation,"

the Thunderbirds--a group of heroes in the 21st century--pilot their spaceships for an organization known as International Rescue. In this adventure, the Thunderbirds go to the rescue of the first manned space flight to Mars. When the astronauts arrive on Mars, they are faced with deadly Martian

rock serpents. The group manages to complete its mission but on the return flight their radio communications go dead, making a crash landing on Earth unavoidable. Luckily the members of International Rescue send a Thunderbird plane to the injured ship and manage to separate the rescue pod

containing the crew members and guide it safely back home. The Shadows sing "Lady Penelope;" Cliff Richard, backed by the group, sings "Shooting Star." A sequel, THUNDERBIRD 6, followed.
