“Best Movie Shot in Space” A.Boxer saied. There are the usual suspects as KUBRICK’s 2001, all this strange Star-Wars-Treck-Alien-bang-bumm-zork-splatter flicks of the 70s, or the 50s invasion flicks (with the notable exception of Forbidden Planet with a young Leslie NIELSEN), or the older serials like Flesh Gordon.
I surely did not choose the best thing shot in(to) space, but one of the earliest I remember to have watched on the heavy black-white-television-set we had at the beginning of the 1970s, after the move into the big city.
It’s “RAUMPATROUILLE – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffs Orion” (Ger., Eng.), commonly known as “Raumschiff Orion” / “Spaceship Orion”, aired for the first time 1966, when Gene RODDENBERRY’s spaceship Entenscheiß was still a wet dream.
