WAR OF THE SATELLITES - Walter Greene - "Mitzi & Jay's Scene" (1958)

Leave it to Roger Corman to throw in a comedy sketch at some random point in a film. Here we have the typical parked car, teens making out, see something weird in the sky, go & check it out scene, but this time it's just a little different because we've got comedienne Mitzi McCall as the girl. It's a little hard to explain, but very obvious when you listen to it. Mitzi went on to have an amazing TV and cartoon voiceover career. It seems Jay made one more movie & called it quits. Walter Greene, the composer of the soundtrack, also went on to have an equally amazing career creating music that helped shape millions of our lifes without us even realizing it, the man who did the music for cartoons including Woody Woodpecker, Chilly Willy, Daffy Duck, Pink Panther & more. Here's a very strange scene from "War Of The Satellites" that sounds more like it's from a "Three Stooges" episode.
