TERROR FROM THE YEAR 5000 - Richard DuPage - "Theme & Swing" (1958)

Another vision from exactly 50 years ago, "Terror From The Year 5000" might not be the most exciting movie in the world, but it did have a world class soundtrack by composer of note, Richard DuPage, and it was 50 years ago! Composer and arranger, masetro DuPage also conducted the Sperry(Gyroscope)Symphony. I have no idea what that is, but it sure sounds cool! The theme for this film is very dramatic with that extra special narration, and the swing is great, albeit short, in the bar scene! It's a bit of a mix from......."Terror In The Year 5000"!!

Pretty much just basically looking for trouble here!

Screw Victor! The first episode of "Bonanza" in color just came on the TV Set!

There's a bit of confusion at this point between scary and just plain ugly. Ok, I get it, the future is going to be ugly, but what about those giant sequin things all over her body, is the future doomed to be nothing more than oil on velvet?

You gotta like the good old fashioned way of dealing with the future!

Just shoot it!!

Yes, the mutant girl form TERROR FROM THE YEAR 5,000 predates the great Larry Buchanan with monsters who are neither scary nor frightening, but … just rather disappointing.
