By Craig Possessed (#2): “Mars Needs Women”

The 1967 Mars Needs Women is a low-budget, visually crude and, up to a point, silly sci fi TV movie (was it ever broadcast?). But at least it co-stars Yvonne Craig. Most of the other actors in the flick make Miss Craig look (histrionically) like Jane Fonda. As for appearance, to me Craig looks just as good as the young Fonda. A sleek brunette, she plays Dr. Marjorie Bolen, an expert in something called space genetics. She’s smart but also, well, ready for romance, unaware that handsome Dop (Tommy Kirk) is a humanoid Martian.

Miss Craig is the only really appealing element in this movie, another one I saw on Amazon Prime—for free, of course.
