This Island Earth is a 1955 American science fiction film directed by Joseph M. Newman. It is based on the novel of the same name by Raymond F. Jones. The film stars Jeff Morrow as the alien Exeter, Faith Domergue as Dr. Ruth Adams, and Rex Reason as Dr. Cal Meacham. The film was one of the first major science fiction films to be made in Technicolor. In 1996, This Island Earth was also edited down and lampooned in the film ''Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie.
When initially released, the film was praised by most critics, many citing the special effects, well-written script and eye-popping color (prints by Technicolor) as being its major assets.
On the other hand, the film suffers from numerous scientific errors. The laboratory cat is called Neutron "because he's so positive" (the name should therefore have been Proton); the Earth is surrounded by a "heat barrier" which the Metalunan saucer must negotiate both when leaving and returning - although visually dramatic this has no scientific basis; a planet is referred to as having once been a comet; and another is transformed into a sun by meteorite bombardment.
The film was one of the last films to use the three-strip Technicolor filming process. Even during production, the film's special effects were shot on the more conventional Eastman color process, which most studios had already adopted.
