The slave (Victor Lundin), who looks like a South American Indian, becomes Draper’s ‘Man Friday’ and together they make a long trek to the Martian polar ice cap where they await rescue by another American spaceship. At the directorial helm was Byron Haskin (1899-1984), who perhaps is better known for such memorable science fiction films as The War of the Worlds (1953), Conquest of Space (1955), and From the Earth to the Moon (1958).

But then again, this film is charming in its naïve re-envisioning of Defoe’s legendary character. Toodles! This is not a film that will challenge our intellect or astonish us with eye popping visual effects. The film succeeds in capturing society’s desire to send a man to Mars and conveys a sense of excitement at the discovery of being on another planet. People have shot movies there before, but usually down in the valley. These films are available now on OVID TV. Few would disagree that Robinson Crusoe on Mars is one of the most fascinating titles in the history of cinema. Interestingly enough, the original script by Ib Melchior featured a Mars more akin to the place envisioned by Edgar Rice Burroughs’s beloved novels, where the courageous John Carter rescued beautiful Martian princesses from the hands of grotesque alien monsters. Utilising the relatively new photographic techniques of vast Techniscope and Technicolor, Robinson Crusoe On Mars remains an imaginative marvel of classic science fiction cinema. The secluded island trope in films such as Cast Away and television shows such as Lost gives culture a chance to examine and explain the human animal in pristine, lab like, habitat conditions.

Larry Butler, who later did the effects in Marooned (1969) over at Columbia, did the effects on Crusoe as a favour to me. B.B. Later on, stretching any remaining sense of believability, Kit finds Friday (Vic Lundin), an alien humanoid enslaved by a ruthless extraterrestrial civilization. A blue sky would have been a dead giveaway, so he matted in an orange-red colour. The juxtaposition of the famous character created by the legendary British author, Daniel Defoe (1660-1731), in his classic novel originally published in 1719, and our enigmatic neighboring planet, is intriguing to say the least.
