Thunderbirds Are Go / Thunderbird 6 movie sceneThunderbirds Are Go (1966) and Thunderbird 6 (1968), the cinematic evolution of Gerry Anderson’s hugely popular British Sixties TV series, Thunderbirds, arrive on Blu-ray for the very first time courtesy of Twilight Time.

The Thunderbirds were a mix of puppetry (via the patented Supermarionation process, which allowed synchronization of dialogue with marionette movement), sci-fi futurism, action-adventure, and undeniably fabulous Sixties-era design. The feature films Thunderbirds Are Go and Thunderbird 6 weave tales of the adventures of the Tracy Family, a father and five sons who, with the assistance of the glamorous British agent Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, run International Rescue, an elite team who roam the globe—and beyond—in a humanitarian effort to help their fellow men.

-Isolated score track
