Director

Pietro Francisci (also credited as screenwriter and editor)

Storyline

A spaceship from Hydra crashes on Sardinia. Aliens take a scientist, his daughter, technicians and spies hostage to fix their ship. After repairs, aliens abduct the humans but they rebel, sending the ship into deep space. (from IMDb)

Notes

The images here are in 4/3 ratio, which is how it is presented on the blu-ray release. It seems it was filmed in this ratio and then cropped at the top and bottom for cinema release, rather than these images being cropped and missing information from the left and right. I considered cropping the images to 1.85/1 ratio which would have made the images bigger on our pages, but then you would have lost some actors in a few images such as the lecture, so I have left them as they were.

There is a lot of bad information to be found about this film online and elsewhere. The commentary on this blu-ray mixes up the identities of Snell and Ruffo, while ANICA mis-credits Leontine May in the role played by Leontine Snell.

4 is just Leontine Snell again wearing a costume.

14: Girl in first row on the right is Nadia Marsala. In the row behind her on the far right is Carlo Micolano.

16, 17A and 17 is Nello Appodia.

41 should be Giulio Massimini.
