Description

Contains these four films on two DVDs: BATTLE BEYOND THE SUN (1962), VOYAGE TO A PREHISTORIC PLANET (1965), VOYAGE TO THE PLANET OF PREHISTORIC WOMEN (1968), and PLANETA BUR (PLANET OF STORMS, 1962). In the mid-1960s producer Roger Corman purchased the US rights to a handful of Soviet sci-fi movies: PLANETA BUR (PLANET OF STORMS, 1962), THE SKY BECKONS (NEBO ZOVYOT, 1959) and A DREAM COMES TRUE (MECHTE NAVSTRECHU, 1963). From these three movies Corman fashioned four ''new'' movies: QUEEN OF BLOOD (1966), BATTLE BEYOND THE SUN (1962), VOYAGE TO A PREHISTORIC PLANET (1965) and VOYAGE TO THE PLANET OF PREHISTORIC WOMEN (1968). Three had theatrical runs, with VOYAGE TO THE PREHISTORIC PLANET being sold directly to television via AIP-TV. Corman handed the revamping of the films off to a talented group of young directors, including Francis Ford Coppola (BATTLE), Peter Bogdanovich (PREHISTORIC WOMEN), and Curtis Harrington (QUEEN and PREHISTORIC PLANET). American stars, including Basil Rathbone, Faith Domergue and Mamie Van Doren, were pressed into service and filmed new scenes in a matter of days. Included in this four movie on two DVDs collection are wide screen versions of BATTLE and PREHISTORIC WOMEN, which enjoyed a brief outing in the Drive-Ins, PLANETA BUR is presented in Russian with English subtitles, and PREHISTORIC PLANET is presented full frame. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, Curtis Harrington; Stars Basil Rathbone, Mamie Van Doren, Faith Domergue. Contents DISC ONE: Battle Beyond the Sun - widescreen.
