Anne Francis handles the role as the daughter of a self-exiled hermit and closet megalomaniac with aplomb. Her performance as the otherworldly Altaira is beguiling. Her pet robot processes her orders to make clothes with precious green emeralds out of thin air. Is that not a dream? One wonders if she has alien DNA; her actions are unsettling; graceful, childlike, and unknowing. Interestingly, the outfits she wears, once portrayed as fantastical and absurdly short costumery, are now being placed on a pedestal in the fashion world. As special effects are becomingly increasingly digitized, with the art of frame by frame drawings and paintings rapidly disappearing, the ones employed in this movie at times seem cheesy, yet surprisingly sophisticated. A visual and ponderable feast that is sure to fulfill your geeky needs, and exceedingly in that respect, many times over. Watch it at YouTube.

Altaira, we give up, how can we beat your perfectly cinched waist?
But wait! Is there a worthy opponent?
It's alright, it defeated that monster of an outfit.
Ah. How I long to be in an era like that. In case you aren't wondering, which I am guessing you still aren't wondering, that dashing James Bond lookalike is actually Mr. Magoo, aka Leslie Nielsen.
