We’ll watch “Phantom from 10,000 Leagues” from 1955. It’s not a bad film. Nor is it a great film, but it was hard to make great movies in 1955 unless James Dean was in your cast. There are no big names in this movie. But there is a goofy monster created by some nuclear mishap, so there’s that. And if you liked The Mary Tyler Moore Show, there are characters named Ted Baxter and Mr. Grant.
Joining us to watch this trip to Malibu in the 50’s will be authors Raymond and Gail Orwig. They wrote the book on locations where monster movies were made. Literally. They penned “Where Monsters Walked” and will tell us about their new book “Fantastic Serial Sites of California.”
All this while Handrew channels Jason and Tangella has none of it, next Saturday night at 9PM Pacific on YouTube at the enclosed link and on-demand at our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels. Don’t miss it!
