but as happened often back then, there was nothing ABOUT the movie in the accompanying blurb. which really was frustrating at the time, I'll tell you what.
Spaceships" book/magazine (one I still have. boy, it took forever to find that link, and I didn't know Starlog had ceased print publication) which featured a picture of the cool "Atomic Astro Boat Gamma". this is one of my favorite spaceships of the movies.
this Japanese movie by Shochiku Studios was populated by several gaijin, or non-Japanese "actors", many of whom appeared in a lot of other Japanese movies when they needed a token foreigner.
no, I don't know how they made that!
Peggy starred in two Japanese genre movies, this and the fun "Terror Beneath the Sea". these days she seems to have vanished. I would love to see or hear an interview with her. it's hard to gauge her acting ability, since she's dubbed into English. the R2 DVD has this very odd English dub, and the version we saw as kids was dubbed by Titra.
