This silent comedy-drama is something unusual as a Danish sci-fi story! Written by novelist Sophus Michaelis and the founder of the Great Northern Company, Ole Olsen, Himmelskibet starred Gunnar Toln├Žs as the brave Avanti Planetaros (!), who travels to the planet Mars. Once there, he falls in love with a pretty Martian (Lily Jacobsen) and together they return to Planet Earth to spread the Martian theories of love, peace and understanding, a timely message indeed in the midst of World War I. One of the Great Northern's biggest undertakings, Himmelskibet was filmed in a rock quarry south of the Danish capitol of Copenhagen.
