THE COSMIC MAN - Paul Sawtell & Bert Shefter (1959)

I don't know why, I just love the fact that ABP used a chicken instead of something like a lion for their film openings!

Well, the whole site has been pretty 'Cosmic' lately, it must be in the stars, so why stop here?? From 1959, with an interstellar theme from maestros Paul Sawtell(One of the most uncredited composers of stock music in film history)and Bert Shefter(A composer of equal acclaim), here's "The Cosmic Man"!!!

"The Cosmic Man"is a well made, but sleepy little movie. You know, he comes from space, he's pretty cool, creeps around at night and is strange and scary if you don't get what's going on, but plays chess and heals crippled children in his spare time! I like this strange cat from outer space in his giant floating tinfoid ball, and John Carradine in his 40 millionth role does a classy job one more time!!!

It might just be a little too techincal for all you every day folks!!

And, Viola! For no apparent reason at all, Mr. Cosmic takes off a brief moment to do some peeping while he's out wandering around at night!!

Man, it's really frustrating when the cutting torch won't work on the stupid floating ball. The End!

The thing that this film has going for it, over 1951s THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, is that it is a story of love, compassion, and healing, rather than an angry and accusatory political screed with a "monster" named Gort (aka God).

This film reflects the kind heart and soul of the late Arthur C. Pierce.
