Direct from the World's Fair in Chicago!

Graham Linehan: "There’s so much to love in this pre-Buster Crabbe Buck Rogers short that I don’t know where to begin… Wilma’s entrance, Buck’s entrance, the ‘war arrow’, the many, many looks to camera… it’s the feel-good hit of the day!"

Delightful. I especially love the shots of the shifty-eyed "Tiger Men From Mars" inside their ship.

It's like Mister Buck Rogers' Neighborhood. I expected the Tiger Men to be led by Daniel Striped Tiger.

How can a film so fantastic in concept be so excruciating plain in execution. "Oh. boy. what. a. battle. that. was." *touches hand to forehead*

I loved the special effects though.
