First Spaceship On Venus-DDR (1959)

 Originally entitled Der Schweigende Stern (The Silent Star), First Spaceship On Venus is a East German and Polish produced Sci-Fi film from 1959. The film is based on the novel The Astronauts by Stanislaw Lem. Steeped with Communist politics of internationalism and aesthetics, First Spaceship On Venus is notable for its multiracial cast.
This is one of the best Sci-Fi films ever produced. It's certainly better than anything Hollywood has produced. Star Trek, Star Wars, etc will not be considered good after watching First Spaceship On Venus.
I wanted to post the original German version. Unfortunately, I was unable to find a version online with English subtitles. As most of the visitors to this blog are native English speakers and others speak English as their first foreign language, I have posted the American dubbed version. Enjoy!
