Dr. Who And The Daleks (1965)

Starring Peter Cushing, Roy Castle, Jennie Linden, Roberta Tovey, Barrie Ingham
Directed by Gordon Flemyng
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

Doctor Who and his companions travel through time and space to a world at war between the peaceful Thals and the evil Daleks.

The first of two feature films adapted from the Doctor Who television serial, this one's not quite as fun as its followup, Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D., but is still an entertaining adventure.  Cushing is fine as the brilliant if forgetful doctor, but the screenplay affords a little too much dialogue to the slow-talking robotic-voiced Daleks, who are sometimes difficult to understand.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed the picture, which boasts good production design and a fine music score.
