This film combines two 1972 amateur shorts produced by Shawn Malone. In “The Polarian,’ an alien makes items (including people) vanish and reappear out of thin air. “Galactic Patrol” features an intergalactic battle, presented using model spaceships. A young Malone produced these and many other amateur films in Houston during the 1970s, casting his family and friends as the featured players.
