In the distant future of 1980, marriages must be approved by the courts, based on ones' value to society. J-21 (John Garrick) can't get permission to wed the beautiful LN-18 (Maureen O'Sullivan), as his rival, the wealthy and arrogant MT-3 (Kenneth Thomson), is more socially prominent. J-21 appeals the decision and is given six months to distinguish himself. As scientist Z-4 (Hobart Bosworth) has just invented a Rocket Plane (e.g. spacecraft) J-21 volunteers to be the first man to fly it to Mars. His [[FishOutOfTemporalWater anachronistic]] friend Single-0 (El Brendel) stows away on the InterplanetaryVoyage in order to provide PluckyComicRelief.

-->-- '''"Photoplay"''', ''November 1930''

A big budget ScienceFiction musical comedy, featuring the most impressive special effects seen up to that time. The animated model of New York was large enough to fill a zeppelin hangar and cost a quarter million dollars to build -- and this during the Great Depression!

They give him the name Single-0, then forget about him. Fortunately the kind-hearted J-21 is there to take Single-0 under his wing.
