First, a note. ZOMBIES OF THE STRATOSPHERE marked the science-fiction film debut of actor Leonard Nimoy. He plays Narab - one of the Martian "zombies" - and actually has a few lines in the film. I was kind of surprised Amazon didn't list him as an actor - since Nimoy's presence might actually lend to increased sales of this DVD set.

In the space of three years (1949-1952), Republic Pictures put out 3 "rocket man" serials - all using the same rocket suit for the hero. Only the hero's identity changed. The first of the 3 was KING OF THE ROCKET MEN - starring Tristram Coffin as the hero in the suit, Jeff King. Then came RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON - starring George Wallace as the hero in the suit, Commando Cody. Finally, six months later, came ZOMBIES OF THE STRATOSPHERE - starring Judd Holdren as the hero in the suit, Larry Martin. All three are worthy serials and all deserve recognition. But only 1949's KING OF THE ROCKET MEN episodes achieved after-market success - later compiled into a standalone film release titled LOST PLANET AIRMEN, released in 1951.

EDIT - Originally, I said that 1952's RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON was turned into a 1953 TV series titled COMMANDO CODY - SKY MARSHALL OF THE UNIVERSE. Not true. While the "Commando Cody" name made the transition to the series, the part of Commando Cody was played by Judd Holdren (Larry Martin in the ZOMBIES serial) and the story line was significantly different. Thanks to George Fergus who pointed that out in his comment.

The plot of ZOMBIES OF THE STRATOSPHERE, even now, could be believable. An alien race (Martians) is dying and their planet is slowly becoming unable to support life. To remedy this, the Martians come up with a delicate but ingenious plan.

Zombies of the Stratosphere (Republic Studios, 1952) was the second serial featuring the popular new hero "Commando Cody" alias "Rocketman". The fist serial (With the introduction of Rocketman) was titled "King of the Rocket Men", and the third installment was "Zombies of the Stratosphere". What made the character unique was his ability to use a rocket powered flying suit to stop crime and to protect earth from evil forces from space. Zombies of the Stratosphere dealt with our hero preventing Martian invaders from using a hydrogen bomb to blow Earth away from the Sun so that Mars can take its orbital place. Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek fame) plays one of the three Martian invaders, Narab. I like all three serials of this making frankly because the character potrayed is so cool. I can find no wrong in these serials and I thnk some critics over kill the review of these serials. The special effects were done superbly in the days they were produced. I have often wondered why the production companies don't produce another feature film using the original flying suit produced in the serials indicated.

Zombies of the Stratosphere was budgeted at $172,838 although the final negative cost was $176,357.
Larry Martin (Commando Cody) played by Judd Holdren, and Sue Davis (Aline Towne). All the special effects in Zombies of the Stratosphere were produced by the Lydecker brothers(Exclusive to Rebulic Effects team. The film is presented in its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio and The disc includes a trailer for Zombies of the Stratosphere. These serials were an influence for The Rocketeer movie. This serial is very watchable and it will hold your interest. It's a fun movie and a good film to watch to escape everyday life. I gave it five stars for acting, plot, and originality. Enjoy.

I saw this on TV as a kid and have always had a soft spot for the cheesy plot and clumsy dialog. This set is a good transfer.

In 1952, Republic Pictures was struggling. Their famous "movie serials" were losing attendence and fans to the new medium of television. Trying to cash in on the sci-fi craze, Republic presented one of the final movie serials ZOMBIES OF THE STRATOSPHERE Starring Judd Holdren, Lane Bradford, and in his first role... Leonard Nemoy, This serial tells the story of a diobolical ailen trying to create an H-Bomb explosion to blow Earth out of it's orbit so his planet can take it's place. Only Larry Martin can stop him, with the aid of his amazing rocketpack.
This serial takes advantage of Republic's greatest reasouce, Stuntmen and special effects. Larry Martin and his rocketsuit flying through the air is really little mroe than a dummy on wires. This classic matinee serial has been colorized and slightly edited to create an amazing improved version of this crazy sci-fi classic. After all, Green Faced Martians in Purple Suits in a Pink rocketship, It's hard not to have fun! If you're looking for a fun nostalgic trip into the past, you can't go wrong with ZOMBIES OF THE STRATOSPHERE.

you can't pass up plotting martians if you get the chance no matter what form of takeover they choose. it is nonviolent. and there are no zombies. that's the fifties trying to sound exciting. they're martians. and that's a classic formula! it is a decent serial for people who really like movie serials a lot. it's back and forth. lane bradford is the subdued martian leading the takeover. he was in lone ranger a number of times. leonard nimoy makes his debut here. he is a henchman. he has a brief monologue toward the end that is nice. you'll have to hang in there until then if you want to hear him speak more than a phrase! the martians wear hooded uniforms so you can only see his face, but his face looks more babyfaced than on star trek with shatner so it is kinda neat to see him that way. you get to see him 15 years younger here. judd holdren is in this one as the good guy rocketman. later you will see him as a rocketman again in commando cody: skymarshal of the universe. i liked that one and thought was a decent one that was underrated. Roy Barcroft is also in this but is uncredited.
