Title:Battle Beyond The Sun

Date: 1959
Type: Sci-Fi
Rating: 3 Stars 3/5
Colour: Yes
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Producer: Roger Corman

In a post-apocalyptic world the two remaining power blocks compete to be the first to land a space ship on Mars. This film started life as an impressive Russian sci-fi film (Nebo zovyot) with some good sets and visuals. This version was heavily cut, re-edited, dubbed and additional scenes added by Corman and Coppola. Watching the film, you are left with the impression that the original film was better than the American version.
