Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Not technically a feature film, Aliens from Another Planet consists of two 60-minute episodes from the vintage Irwin Allen sci-fi TV series The Time Tunnel. James Darren and Robert Colbert star as Tony Newman and Doug Phillips, two research scientists working on a huge, high-tech time machine. Sucked into the mechanism in Episode One, Doug and Tony are compelled to pay danger-laden visits to the past and future, courtesy of the 20th Century-Fox stock-footage department. The first episode included herein is Chase Through Time, originally telecast February 24, 1967, in which the Time Travellers are projected into the far distant future by an unhinged nuclear technician (played by no less than Robert Duvall). In the second installment, Visitors From Beyond the Stars (original air date: January 13, 1967), a group of extraterrestrials land on Earth in the year 1885.
