The Mexican lobby card for El Cohete Conquistador (Riders to the Stars, 1954), with Richard Carlson. There is a surprising contrast in the composition here. On the left hand you get a strong sense that slinky babes are naturally attracted to stellar astronauts in chunky spacesuits (although he’d be hard to kiss with that fishbowl on his head). On the right hand, you get to wonder if it’s all really worth it, given the prone position that astronaut winds up in. Had I a third hand, I’d point out the phallic significance of the firing rocket, but that’s all subliminal anyway.
