I Criminali della Galassia (Criminals of the Galaxy) is an Italian film made in 1965. It was directed by Antonio Margheriti who, after making two previous SF movies; Assignment Outer Space (1960) and Battle of the Worlds (1961), was considered something of an expert of meagre budgeted SF romps. As such he was hired by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to direct a series of four films that became known collectively as the Gamma-One series. Wild, Wild Planet was the first of these and was followed by War of the Planets, War Between the Planets and Snow Devils. And although originally contracted by MGM as a series of made for TV movies all were actually released theatrically. Enjoy..
