Film Trivia

Working with most of the same crew, this was one of several early 1950s films made by Wilder and son Myles on a financing-for-distribution basis with United Artists and, on occasion, RKO Radio Pictures.
W. Lee Wilder formed a film production company in the early 1950s called Planet Filmplays for the purpose of producing and directing "quickie" low-budget science fiction films, with screenplays co-written with his son Myles.
Phantom from Space (1953) uses stock footage of radar rigs. Some of this stock footage would later reappear in Killers from Space (1954).
