Fire Maidens of Outer Space (1956)

This film is chock-a-block full of B-movie sci-fi gems. Here’s my favourite: They’re landing their rocket on a planet which looks a lot like a someone’s front lawn. Stubbing out their cigs, they test if the atmosphere is breathable by sticking their heads out the door. To reach the ground, out comes a regular wooden ladder from the rocket door. Down they waddle. One of the film crew lobs a few boulders at their feet. ‘Meteor shower!’ they shout. We were pointing at the screen cackling with delight!
