CREATION OF THE HUMANOIDS - I.F.M. - "Electronic Harmonics" (1962)

You know I'm starting to see a pattern here! If you combine a freaky weird vision and anything with shrill but soothing ethereal voices from the farthest nether regions of outer space, then you have probably reached the uttermost point of some film score composer's conceptual dream! I'm thinking the "Creation Of The Humanoids" theme is a perfect example of what I'm trying to convey here, if you get my meaning, if you feel my drift!

The musical credits go to "Electronic Harmonics by I.F.M." which might stand for 'Inspired by Famous Monsters'!!!

A warm spot for a cold heart!!

Don McGowan is another one of those characters that is the epitome of 1950's and 60's TV and movies, but beyond all that, he has the distinction of being the guy who wore the "gill man" suit when the creature was on land in "The Creature Walks Among Us." So now, you've got a reason to see two movies!!

Director Wesley Barry was an interesting guy, having been an actor since a stint in a 1916 film entitled "Maybe Moonshine." He acted in over 60 films before deciding to go to the other side of the camera as director and producer. "Creation Of The Humanoids" was the last film he produced! Unfortunately, nobody lives forever, and Mr. Barry passed away in 1994 in Fresno, Calif, but his massive body of work will live on forever thanks to modern technology like in this movie!! See it on Monsters HD!!

Need we say it? -- Andy Warhol's favorite movie! While it would appear that the late pop-meister was just being ironic, there are a lot of people who used to hang out at the Factory who said that Andy owned a print of this film and forced people to watch it amidst all the drugs and sex that was going on!
