Film: Devil Girl from Mars
An innkeeping couple, a female bartender, a model, a scientist, a journalist, an escaped murderer and a little boy are at an inn in the moors of Scotland. Minding their own business, a UFO lands in the dead of night. From whence emerges Nyah, the Devil Girl from Mars
, a space-queen unrivaled in the annals of B-Movie
campiness. Her dominatrix boots and patent-leather cape, not to mention her highbrow imperious accent, easily outclass the features on display from the Venusian babes in Queen of Outer Space
or the Martianettes in Flight To Mars
. Oh, and check out that Devil Girl headgear, a cross between a medieval helmet and an Egyptian sphinx! In silhouette, Nyah foretells the image of Darth Vader by 23 years, striding about with cape swirling to do something unspeakably naughty. Upon her homeworld, a war between the genders has decimated the male population, so Nyah, accompanied by her Tin-Can Robot
Chani, has come in search of earth men for breeding stock. Mars Needs Men!
Was adapted - believe it or not - from a stage play
. Oh, and it was the first science fiction film Gerry Anderson
ever worked on (as sound editor).
