Description Wizard of Mars (1965)Director: David L. Hewitt; Starring: John Carradine - The Wizard of Mars, Roger Gentry - Steve, Vic McGee - Doc, Jerry Rannow - Charlie, Eve Bernhardt - Dorothy. Plot: In 1974 four astronauts, silver shoe-clad Dorothy, overweight Doc, goofy Charlie, and wooden Steve, crash land on Mars when taking readings, with only four days of supplies. They must try to survive on the surface, which is barren except for some canals with huge maggots with fins. After embarking through a golden igneous cavern, braving a storm and finding an unmanned Earth vessel, they discover a golden road which leads them to the unchanging ruins of what was once a beautiful Martian city. The Martians are modeled on the Flatheads of Oz, and their collective consciousness, the "Wizard" forbids them to leave until they perform a very small task... Summary by Scott Hutchins. Review: Visual artistry, fine acting, a John Carradine performance weighted more by subtlety than flamboyance, accurate scientific research , careful , attentive direction, and a tight coherent script WOULD have made this film a good one. But Alas, it was not to be! This is a muddled mess...The film is not the worst I have seen and there are a few good moments, but the budget is just soooo low. A real eyelid drooper! From the website.
