This is an unsuccessful attempt by producer Harry Saltzman, best known for the James Bond films, to mix pop Music with sf. An embarrassingly made-to-order pop group is kidnapped by Aliens from outer space (who have detected their vibrations) and taken to their planet for the purpose of creating music. The film was an artistic and financial failure. [JB]
