Title: SAUCER MEN KIT need actor info
Post by: spfxteduma on May 25, 2020, 02:11:06 PM
Hi. Does anyone know the name of the actor who played an alien in Invasion of the Saucer Men. It's the guy they used for the model kit. NOT Angelo Rossito. (see pic)

I don't see the pic you refer to but I think the guy we see in a couple of the stills is Dean Neville.  I replied to your other post also.

In the latest volume of Candid Monsters I'm doing a big article about Paul Blaisdell. I have that photo and I have a caption for it. Trying to identify the actor. So far either Dean Neville or Floyd Dixon. Thanks! :-)

Hey Ted, do you know Paul Parla? I know he's done a lot of research into the guys in the monster costumes, especially the '50s ones. Maybe he knows which of the 4 guys this is.

Thanks! It's gonna be tough as Tom told me....Angelo, we know.....two guys were only in one other movie (Court Jester) and one guy was ONLY in Saucer Men. Lots of captions wrongly said it was Angelo. At least we have it down to two.... ;-)
.....er, how do you insert a real photo in my little avatar thingy??? :P

Put your pic in your usual photo host and get the URL (should end in .jpg, etc.)

At the top  of the page, go to "Profile/Forum Profile", then select "Specify avatar by URL" and paste your URL in the box. Then scroll down and click "Change Profile".

A square pic will look best. Anything else will be distorted into a square.

As a last resort, just caption it ". . and unknown Saucerman actor".  :)

He could also be Edward Peter Gibbons but my money is on Dean.

Another unidentified photo. Have we ever seen photos of the other two (not Angelo) guys with their heads off?

I haven't.  I always thought this guy Was Dean Neville because inside the neck of the mask is written the name Dean.  You need a clearer shot than this to see it.  However, in these publicity stills they don't always have their assigned masks.  In the shot with Gloria Castillo, there is a different mask with this actor.

This is, obviously, scanned from an old FM, or other pulp page mag.
