IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA In Color / Columbia Pictures - 1955

Welcome to Monster Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Tonite's feature is a reprise of a previous post of this title, but, this time we're bringing it to you in COLOR!! Also, like our last post, this is a movie from the great year of 1955!

Nothing sez 'big ugly thing' better than blaring horns!

Lettuce bring in our Monster Monday Helper, sure 'nuf, good old Rufus The Gnat! Rufus is here to push the big red 'GO' button and start the show. Push the button now, Rufus, here's... IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA In Color!

Enjoy the pretty pitchers!..

Kenneth Tobey, on the left, will forever be remembered as Captain Patrick Hendry in THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD, the guy was totally awesome with 205 acting credits!! So then, he's perfect here as submarine Commander Pete Mathews. Him and the crew brace themselves for a hit by something big!

Here's Donald Curtis and Faith Domergue as atomic bee keepers!! Don plays Dr. John Carter, Faith plays Professor Lesley Joyce.

Here's another classic fifties 'wrench in the works of the woman scientist' line by the Commander... You know, how can you deny yourself the greatest gift of being a woman...

Faith was discovered by and was a girlfriend of Howard Hughes.

Come on dude, even a giant octapus looks like an octopus, quit acting like a weirdo! The stethoscope reminds the guy of the monster's tentacles he saw... Sheesh!

He won't crack, so they send in the A-Squad to get to the bottom of the story!

Everbloody goes out looking for the giant puss! I built a Revell Panther Jet about this same year. Also, a B-47 with white walls, stylish!

Another Dungeon Favorite is Harry Lauter, he played the Queen's helper, Ampersand, in the Rocky Jones TV series. He was also in FLYING DISC MAN FROM MARS, THE FLYING MISSILE, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, EARTH vs THE FLYING SAUCERS, THE WEREWOLF, JET PILOT, IT'S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD, THE SATAN BUG and SUPERBEAST.

Fish is an aphrodisiac!

Dr. Carter goes out with the crew to look for the beast! I swear, look at the size of Donald's cranium!

Yessir, that's where the Ghiradelli Chocolate Factory is located... Sir!

A still for every tentacle!

If a monster attacked our city in the fifties, we would all meet at the park!

This is how you got around and communicated in the fifties. Look at that radio!

A picture perfect for a postcard!.. 'Greeting from Fisherman's Wharf!'

It's old Rusty the Firetruck to the rescue, go Rusty!!

You know, a flame thrower is always a pretty effective weapon, just ask Dr. Mabuse!

The monster heads back to the ocean to escape the heat!

The only chance they have is with this atomic warhead! Those 2 stills look like some kind of model work!

If you ever wondered what the big red 'GO' button looks like here at The Dungeon, well, not this one!

The button is pushed, thus detonating the deadly bomb!..

Ghoulnight Everbloody!!..

I got the colorized version, but can't remember if I watched it or not!
Thanks for the kind reminder!

It's so spooky what a coincidence it is that I just wrote a blog about this movie last week at! I've never seen it in color, though. Great blog and wonderful photos!
