Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Cole Hendron, Astronomer at Cosmos Observatory: [Presumably he wrote this line on a banner hanging over the Space Ark camp] Waste everything except TIME. Time is your most valuable commodity.
  • David Randall: Here it is: money to burn!
  • David Randall: Dr. Frye, how's your heart? Dr. George Frye, Dean of Eastern School of Technology: [puzzled] Fine. David Randall: [to Dr. Tony Drake] You invented those electrocardiograms for my benefit!
  • Sydney Stanton: Your salvation doesn't interest me; mine does.
  • [first lines] Narrator: [spoken over a shot of outer space] Needles in a heavenly haystack. There are more stars in the heavens than there are human beings on Earth. Through telescopes men of science constantly search the infinitesimal corners of our solar system seeking new discoveries, hoping to better understand the laws of the Universe. Observatories dedicated to the study of astronomy are set in high and remote places, but there is none more remote than Mt. Kenna Observatory in this part of South Africa.
Movie Trivia:
  • In the final shot we see the Ark passengers disembarking with an obvious painted background depicting Zyra. This bad painting was tacked on for the film's sneak previews. Originally, producer George Pal wanted to depict Zyra as a miniature set, but Paramount shipped the film out before this could be done.
  • There is a shot toward the end of a group of people sitting around a country store listening to the radio. Among them the little boy and dog later rescued by helicopter. The same shot shows up in The War of the Worlds (1953)
  • The rocket was designed by space artist Chesley Bonestell.
  • First film of Rachel Ames (as Judith Ames).
  • George Pal wanted to film the novel's sequel, "After Worlds Collide," which depicted the struggle of human survivors on the alien planet. However, the failure of his film Conquest of Space (1955) badly damaged his career and the sequel was never made.
