This movie was lost to the ages until a print was discovered in Buster Keaton's garage after his death. Around 10 or so years ago, Ray Harryhausen was brought in to colorize the film as it was originally hoped to be shot in color by producer Merian C. Cooper. Some critics hated the color but in this instance, I think it works. If not for you, turn down the color on your monitor.

Anyway, it's a really, really good bad movie with incredible sets. Light 'em if you got 'em.

I'll check it out. I love the campy, cheesy science-fi flicks from the late 50's, like "It Came From Beneath the Sea", "The Giant Claw", and "The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman." Also got to love the classic "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" and the great more contemporary spoof "Mars Attacks!!!"

This is a whole 'nuther kind of camp. This had serious production values. Plus, you get a young Randolph Scott, Nigel Bruce (one of my favorites from the old days), and Helen Gahagan (Douglas) playing SWMBO who, as you may know, went on to become a politician who came up with the term Tricky Dick for Richard Nixon. This is the kind of flick you invite friends over to watch.

LOL, this sounds like a classic, Chris. I'll have to check it out.

Along the same lines, I was watching part of a 1957 low-budget British horror film called "The Woman Eater". It sounds positively x-rated, but it involves an insane scientist, a native tribe with a flesh-eating tree and other complications. With females as it's diet the special plant produces a potion that can bring people back to life.

Naturally, things don't go according to plan for anyone.
