I've been looking for the below listed movie for over 20
years.
 
I have only been able to find one listing for it and it is
at UCLA.  Does anyone know if they will make a copy of this
film?
 
Here is the information I've been able to get on the movie
and the prints that are out there:

scientist (Devon), who supposedly has died in an auto
accident, but then reappears, has been taken
over by aliens to prevent the Earth from launching its
first manned spaceflight.
 
NOTES: Shot and released in eight weeks by Roger Corman to
capitalize on the Sputnik launch by Russia. Double billed
in some areas with Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman.
 
The film has never been released on video and the 16 mm
prints are not in existence by the people that own the
the rights to the movie.  I have sent letters to Roger
Corman but he has not sent a reply.  Any assistance in
trying to find this movie would be appreciative.
