Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 75-minute Blast-Off is comprised of three episodes from the 1953 TV series Rocky Jones, Space Ranger. Richard Crane stars as Jones, piloting the atomic-powered "Orbit Jet" on behalf of a 50s version of Star Trek's federation of planets. Accompanying him is copilot Winky (Scotty Beckett), Venusian lovely Vena Ray (Sally Mansfield), and the inevitable Professor (Maurice Cass). The 39 episodes of Rocky Jones were assembed into 13 ersatz feature films, available for both TV and theatrical play. In Blast-Off (aka Beyond the Moon), Rocky comes to the rescue of two of his crew members, who have been kidnapped and brainwashed by hostile extraterrrestrials.
