Trailer Trash XLIX: Fantastic Voyage (1966)

"It drops the bottom out of the world you know and understand!"

A lot of you may be familiar with this movie, or at least the seven or eight episodes of The Magic School Bus that it inspired. By the 1960s there had already been science fiction movies that took us on journeys into space, to the bottom of the sea, and the center of the Earth. Fantastic Voyage, however, was the first movie to send Raquel Welch on a journey through a man's small intestine.

In case the theatrical trailer wasn't psychedelic enough for you, we present a SPECIAL TRAILER TRASH BONUS: The Original 1960s TV Spot:

"Four men and a beautiful girl, off on a FANTASTIC voyage!"

Trailer Trash is a weekly tribute to oddball, cheesy and often just plain terrible movie trailers. Writers: These movies got made... so can yours! You can read through our archive by clicking here.

"Four men and one girl off on a Fantastic Voyage" That sounds like the exact opposite of one of my greatest fantasies.
