Manhunt In Space was originally titled Pirates of Prah and released on May 8th 1954 as a 3 part TV serial. I can't help it, I love this stuff. Rocky (Richard Crane) is just the coolest. He is never wrong and always wins. Virtuous is the guys middle name. He doesn't even look twice at the very attractive and mini skirt clad Vena (Sally Mansfield) the only regular female cast member. Winky (Scotty Beckett) is Rocky's co-pilot on the XV2. What Winky lacks in brain and brawn he makes up for in loyalty. And of course there is the ever present Bobby (Robert Lyden) [who does Bobby belong too?]
Vena is stranded in space by wicked pirates! Rocky makes the Orbit Jet invisible with Professor Newton's latest invention Cold Light. Rocky and Winky must save Vena and track the pirates to their secret base -- It is no surprise that the pirates are employed by the naughty and sexy Cleolanta, who's still so hot for Rocky that you can almost see her thighs quiver whenever his name is mentioned. In the end Rocky as always prevails.
I watched this series on local Baltimore TV station in the mid-sixties and never missed a single episode! I liked it then and I still like it now! Great copy! Thanks, Alpha
