In watching this classic sci-fi film, it appears that the interior lunar base set's metal structural supports closely resemble the sets for the internal support structure of the observation nose of the submarine Seaview in "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" (1961). Since both films were released in the same year (1961) and knowing Irwin Allen's talent for recycling movie and television sets, it's not unreasonable that Allen's production at 20th Century Fox was able to obtain and use these set pieces once production wrapped on "The Phantom Planet".
This is only a personal observation and theory. If anyone has documentation to support or dispute this theory, it is welcomed! Thanks. See more »

I actually found this to be a decent movie. Yeah it suffered from some silliness and goofy stuff like the scene where they space walk to repair their ship and their tool of choice? A wrench, ha!! However, from the point where the astronaut landed on the asteroid it was pretty good. The story was well written for the most part and the acting wasn't that bad. The girls were really cute and if i had landed there, id probably stay and enjoy myself!!! This truly played much like an episode from star trek, with another actor subbing for captain kirk. Some of the special effects on the asteroid were pretty decent, especially when the main character shrank in his space suit. The bad alien crashing rocks into his invisible prison out of frustration was pretty cool too, but the alien itself was kinda stupid looking. There were some genuinely touching scenes: the astronaut saying the Lord's Prayer while he floated helplessly doomed in space, and the final goodbyes there at the end. This was released in 1961 so maybe that explains why its a notch or two better than the typical fifties stuff. I actually enjoyed this one. I'm sure audiences in 1961 weren't let down. Heck they might have caught this one and The Three Stooges Meet Hercules at a drive in double feature. Cool!!!!
