Conquest of Space
About Conquest of Space
Star-gazer George Pal’s infatuation with scientifically accurate depictions of our interplanetary future came to an end with this ill-starred venture which ended up playing second feature bookings. It’s ambitious and full of spectacle, but dramatically it’s pretty primitive. The studio tried to recoup their losses by fashioning a tv pilot around the fx sequences called Destination Space, (available here) but it didn’t sell and Pal moved on to the likes of Tom Thumb.
