Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women (1968) Mamie Van Doren


Director: Peter Bogdanovich (as Derek Thomas)           

Writer: Henry Ney (screenplay)           

Stars: Mamie Van Doren, Mary Marr, Paige Lee         


Two astronauts and a robot are launched on an expedition to Venus when communication to the ship is lost. A second ship is sent to the planet to effect rescue, unknown to the astronauts a clan of psychic alien women live on the planet. Although this low budget film has its problems it is still a fun view, especially to see the beautiful Mamie Van Doren. Mamie plays the chieftess of a clan of women who wear clamshell bikinis and worship a pterodactyl. This movie is said to have effectively ended Mamie's film career, although she did continue to work in show business.  Mamie never became the Hollywood star she wanted to be, she was far too intelligent to sacrifice her self respect for fame and fortune. ★★
