You will meet yourself face-to-face when Earth meets its duplicate in outer space!
A planet is discovered in the same orbit as Earth's but is located on the exact opposite side of the sun, making it not visible from Earth. The European Space Exploration Council decide to send American astronaut Glenn Ross and British scientist John Kane via spaceship to explore the other planet. After a disastrous crash-landing Ross awakes to learn that Kane lies near death and that they apparently have returned to Earth, as evidenced by the presence of the Council director and his staff. Released to the custody of his wife, he soon learns things are not as they seem.

I think a rating slighty above 50 does not do this movie justice.

It was Gerry and Silva Andersons first, and if I´m not mistaken only, movie and the first time they used real actors. Combined with their skills in miniature / model making for special effects. The story was very interresting unfortunately they didn´t get as much out of it as they should have. And that is about the only minus I have. The had a great SciFi concept but they went to many side lanes to explore it deeper. And at times the scenes are to long and do nothing for the plot. But for a late sixties science fiction movie this is as good as they came.
