The Queen of Outer Space

1958, NR, 80 min. Directed by Edward Bernds. Starring Marilyn Buferd, Barbara Darrow, Patrick Waltz, Paul Birch, Lisa Davis, Laurie Mitchell, Dave Willock, Eric Fleming, Zsa Zsa Gabor.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., April 11, 2001

This unintentional (I think) piece of camp features a man-hating female civilization on the planet Venus, several shipwrecked male astronauts held captive by shapely guards who look more like burlesque dancers, and Zsa Zsa Gabor as a scientist (!) and the titular queen of these Amazon women.
