20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH In Color / Columbia Studios - 1957
So, here's a colorized version of this classic that I saw in 1957 with my neighbors. Ray Harryhausen authorized the colorization of this one, IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA and EARTH vs. THE FLYING SAUCERS, which we've already done.
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our Ymir egg, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a little sample from... 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH!
It all starts with one of the fifties coolest spaceships crashing into the ocean off the coast of Sicily. A small fishing boat makes its way to the ship and the men rescue two crew members before the metal hulk sinks to the bottom of the sea.
Let's see now, the Moon goes around the Earth... Check... Okay then, Venus goes around Pluto?!.. Wait, something seems a little weird here...
Yo, General!!.. I could use a little help over here!..
Little Pepe finds a large canister with something very strange inside.
He takes the cannister and sells it to Dr. Leonardo (for the price of a cowboy hat) and the thing breaks out of its casing only to confound the doctor and his daughter, Marisa. Later, the Ymir has grown to human size and grabs Marisa while she was tying down the tarp.
This scene has him eating out of a bag of sulfur, a staple for its race on Venus.
After the creature is caught, they try to figure out what to do with it. What would you do?!
Anyway, it escapes and immediately has to wrassle with a Republican! Ymir kicks its ass!
Okay, you little shits are really starting to Piss Me Off!!!..
Just threw in this composite shot because it's so well composed.
Poor Ymir, a stranger in a strange land to be sure... Check in Wednesday because Eegah!! will have something interesting to share with us, I'm sure...
