Description: Filmed in England, The Gamma People is a strange blend of Prisoner of Zenda type adventure, comic opera, cold war paranoia and science fiction. The film is set in Gudavia, a mythical European country ruled by scientists. These misguided intellectuals have been utilizing gamma rays to create a race of genius-level supermen, Instead, they wind up either with emotionless automatons or hulking, mindless brutes. American newsman Paul Douglas and British photographer Leslie Phillips, literally stumbling into this situation, attempt to save the day. Also battling the Gamma People is Eva Bartok, the sister of one of the human experiments.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
