ASSIGNMENT: OUTER SPACE (1961) *

Antonio Margheriti directed this boring sci-fi melodrama starring Rik (Thunderball) Van Nutter.  An exploratory rocketship comes crashing toward the Earth and threatens to destroy it.  While the astronauts try to figure out a way to change course, a love triangle develops between the uptight captain, a female scientist and a hot shot reporter (Van Nutter).  I dare you to try to stay awake though this one.  Van Nutter was married to Anita Ekberg.  Margheriti later directed more enjoyable trash like Cannibal Apocalypse.  

AKA:  Space Men.
