Queen Of Outer Space, Zsa Zsa Gabor's Magnum Opus

Queen of Outer Space (1958) is one of the classic B movies of all time.  A sultry Zsa Zsa Gabor and a host of space babes, a spider like creature, ray guns, Venusian landscape, and an evil Queen of Venus grace this cinematic achievement.  You women out there have got to like the plot, male astronauts happen upon the planet Venus where males are outlawed.  Unfortunately, just like all-female colleges, the women are eager to break the laws.
In addition to turning Venusian public opinion, our astronauts realize another goal.  The evil queen is almost finished creating a Beta Disintegrator which has the power to destroy Earth.  Can they, with the help of some rebel women (including Zsa Zsa Gabor) destroy this weapon?  Can the Earth men, and Venus women find happiness and love with each other?  The suspense is riveting.
Queen of Outer Space includes costumes for the Venusians which flatter their most impressive features (10 years before Star Trek, these costumes obviously influenced the wardrobe for Enterprise  females).  The spider creature is scary for you creature lovers.  This flick also includes Zsa Zsa Gabor in such a way that will make you forget about her, as seen in the news over the past 15 years.
Say what you want about Queen of Outer Space, but I guarantee you it is better than any sci-fi film of 2013, including that Harrison Ford one. Space babes and spider creatures, even today, is a can't miss proposition in film.
