This was the age of damsels in distress, pocket-change special effects, and those fabulous rubber monster suits. At the same time, such writers as Robert Heinlein, C.L. Moore, and Theodore Sturgeon crafted mature and contemplative screenplays for television and theater audiences. Come watch the best and worst from this era!

THE STOLEN AIRSHIP

aka: Ukradená Vzducholod
(Italy/Czechoslovakia, 1967) 85 minutes

>Based on the Jules Verne novels, "Two Years" and "The Mysterious Island," it is the story of five boys who meet at the Prague Jubilee Exhibition in 1891, where they see a fantastic miracle - dirigible airship owned by the businessman (and trickster) Findejs. Findejs offers the boys a trip around Prague free of charge, but when paying guests appear, he tries to throw them out. He fails to evict them and the boys suddenly find themselves alone in the airship over the city. It proves to be anything but a dirigible, and they cannot control where it goes! First, they skim safely across Europe, but then they crash on an unknown island in the middle of the ocean. Here they enjoy a number of typical Jules Verne adventures until they are rescued by an expedition organized by a sympathetic journalist.
