There's also a cartoon called Destination Earth
coming up in about an hour. I never heard of it, but I'm curious. It's from 1956.
I first saw FP at a Trek convention in NYC in 1975 at age 13... it's been one of my favorites ever since. It plays so much like a lost TOS episode!
Indeed. The first time I saw it was in 1969 on Channel 56, about the same time I started watching Trek.
I saw about twenty minutes of a print of it, but was thoroughly bored. It is notable for being the last film that D.W. Griffith was involved with, although he left the project before filming, so his involvement was limited.
Sorry you didn't like it. I find old stuff like that appealing, and Victor Mature and Carole Landis are great.
