[Opening song lyrics sung by Kitty White, though IMDb's quote section would not let me add her as "other" in the quotes section]
"Riders to the Stars - that is what we are every time we kiss in the night. Jupiter and Mars aren't very far anytime your holding me tight. Your embrace changed time and place. Hurled in space were we, and now we're Whirling past the moon, far away from Earth just the way I dreamed love would be. Riders to the stars are we."

This is a great sci-fi film from the pre-space age era. This remains on my short list of Sci-fi films I'd like to see again but can't find. It uses stock footage of V-2 rockets and others from the early atom bomb tests. It is very good to excellent and a darned shame that it is not available on vhs. Younger sci-fi buffs who haven't seen it are missing out on a good example of this 1950s genre.
