Galaxina (1980)

galxina11

A late Star Wars (1977) spoof featuring lowbrow comedy, duff special effects, an awkward Alien (1979) parody and a central performance by Dorothy Stratten, murdered by her estranged husband on the very day it received its American premiere.

The doomed starlet is the robot navigator on board a police spaceship, the Infinity, who gets sent on a 28-year mission to recover possession of the powerful Blue Star crystal.

Few laughs and even fewer thrills are raised thanks to an unfocused script and haphazard direction by Z-movie maestro William Sachs.

A sad epitaph for Stratten whose life story was turned into the acclaimed Bob Fosse movie Star 80 (1983).
