A team of astronauts crashes on the surface of Venus. Accompanied by their robot, they explore the surface and end up destroying the Venusian God. This film is also known as “The Gill Women” and “The Gill Women of Venus”.
This film began life as a Soviet-produced work. An American producer then added some new footage and changed the credits to hide the film’s Soviet origin. The original film, “Planeta Bur”, is also known as “Cosmonauts on Venus”, “Planet of Storms”, “Planet of Tempests”, “Planeta Burg”, and “Storm Planet”. Much of the film “Planeta Bur” was also incorporated into the “American” film “Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet”.
This film was shown in “Pathe” color, which is essentially just a method of placing color filters over a black and white film. Consequently, the color that you see is not the true color of the sets but instead represents an “interpretation” of a black and white original.
