Houston, we have a negative on that orbit trajectory.

Above are three promo posters for the British sci-fi romp The Love Factor, aka Zeta One, aka Zeta Uno, and while it is not our intention to pose as film reviewers, when we watch these movies we can’t help but share our thoughts. We had high hopes this one would be a bit like Barbarella, and it is—if you can imagine an earthbound version made with a fraction of the budget and none of the sets or special effects. But we do dig the posters, and certainly have no problem with the likes of Yutte Stensgaard, Anna Gaël, Carol Hawkins, and Valerie Leon running around in minimal to zero costuming. In fact, the film is possibly worth a screening just to see Stensgaard in the scene where she burns a coq au vin. After making a nude sprint to save the doomed chicken, she returns to the bedroom and tells her companion, “The cock’s ruined.” Aspiring screenwriters take note—that’s how it’s done. And now below, for no other reason than because we found some cool photos, we have a feature we’re calling "The Women of The Love Factor." Top to bottom, you have Brigitte Skay, Hawkins, Stensgaard, Leon, and Gaël. Made in 1969, The Love Factor opened in the U.S. today in 1975.

Schultz, who was the target, lingers in the hospital for about a day before dying.
