ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS (1964) - Blu-Ray

Stars Paul Mantee, Victor Lundin, Adam West and a monkey. A Mars space probe with three astronauts fails. Mantee ends up the only surviving member and tries to survive along on Mars with the only other survivor being a test monkey that was on the spacecraft. Visions of his dead crew members haunt him as the isolation becomes overwhelming...until he meets an alien. Really fun with some great effects for its time.

The Criterion Collection's DVD of Robinson Crusoe on Mars is a handsome treatment of a minor classic. A commentary track stitches together comments from a variety of participants, including Mantee, Haskin (in a 1979 interview), and original screenwriter Ib Melchior (disagreements between Haskin and Melchoir are included). A featurette, Destination--Mars gives some of the "science fact" behind the movie, and excerpts from Melchoir's original treatment show suggest changes made. And a "music video" puts movie clips alongside a song written and performed by co-star Victor Lundin, a number he developed for his appearances at sci-fi conventions. --Robert Horton.
