Assignment Outer Space ★ Space Men 1961

A giant spaceship with bytes for brains is on a collision course with Earth. A team of astronauts is sent to save the world from certain peril. Seems they take the task lightly, though, and their mission (and hence the plot) revolves more around saving sexy sultress Farinon from certain celibacy. If you're into stultifying Italian space operas with a gratuitous sex sub-plot then look up this assignment, but don't say we didn't warn you. Director Margheriti is also known as Anthony Dawson, not to be confused with the actor of the same name. 79m/B VHS, DVD . IT Rik van Nutter, Gabriella Farinon, Archie Savage, Dave Montresor, Alan Dijon; D: Anthony M. Dawson; Nar: Jack Wallace.
