THE LOST PLANET Conqueror Of Space! / Columbia Pictures - 1953
Welp, the holidays are over and we're now living in the year 2015. Things have changed a little around here, on this, my first post of the year. I've started creating my own sound clips. This gives Eegah!! a well deserved break from this time consuming routine, something he's been doing for both of us since 2007!.. FYI ~
So, here's a pretty cool sound clip from this decent super-serial for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by our lost keys, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a taste of... THE LOST PLANET!
The story's about an evil genius, Dr. Grood, who has succeeded in winning control over the planet Ergro, the first step in his conquest of the Universe. Using hypnotism, Grood captures reporter Rex Barrow, his photographer Tim Johnson, Professor Edmund Dorn and his daughter Ella, and plans on making use of the Professor's scientific knowledge. They are all rocketed to Ergro by Grood. Then, with the aid of the professor's inventions, Rex is able to free Ergro of Grood's domination.
Here's Grood, aka the hermit of Mt. Vulcan, checking in with his Ergro pal, Reckov, played by Dungeon Hero, Gene (THE SHE-DEMONS and THE SPIDER) Roth. Have you ever noticed that the names of the bad guys in these serials always had an Eastern-European ring to them?
Grood's helper pushes buttons and turns knobs at his his command as they create havoc.
They even have these little pesky animated flying saucers, as heard in the sound clip.
On Ergro, Grood's rocket delivers canisters of hypno-gas to keep Prof. Dorn in line. Notice how courteous the helper is, when you're wearing a helmet, you're refered to as a "robot."
Proffessor Dorn, who's already on Ergro, gets a dose of gas before donning his helmet.
Back on Earth, Rex and Tim are hot on the trail of a tip on the location of Dr. Grood's hideout.
Grood catches Rex, Ella and Tim snooping around, so, gasses them, making them completely receptive to his every command.
He sticks them in his rocket and sends them off to Ergro.
At the end of the first episode, Reckov tries to send the rocket into a volcano! Will they be burned to a crisp or will Prof. Dorn foil the plan?!...... DURR!
Tune in tomorrow when Eegah!! shows up yet again with another fun post!
