| Rare 1930's Sci-Fi Fantasy
A small town Shrimpton-on-sea is sucked off earth by a passing dark star and becomes a planet in its own right. At first the community is happy to be governed by the squire and the usual village hierarchy, but then led by the butcher, a democratic government is elected which is more socialist in nature. The climax of the film is when civil war threatens to break out.

Not as expensive or as well acted as other sci-fi films of the period it is an interesting period piece, having a distant relationship with Jules Verne's "Off On A Comet" and worth a look. I give it four because of its story line and rarity more than for its place in cinematic history. Thnk you Talkingpictures TV for showing it!
