The Phantom Planet (1961)



Reviews and Comments

An astronaut crash lands on a strange planet and shrinks to just a few inches tall as a result. Ok, so the science on that point is sketchy, shall we say, but maybe the astronaut is hallucinating his entire visit on this planet, which has a bunch of other tiny people. It's an interesting question that is not actually addressed by the film, and in any case the story that takes place on the planet is not interesting either as something that really happens or as a hallucination.
