Best 1950's Era Double-Feature
« on: May 26, 2018, 12:10:31 PM »
The 1950's saw the double feature boom with the era of the drive-in and marketing towards the teenage audiences. As a result many studios went for an almost "anything goes" approach to the horror and sci-fi film releases of this period. This list is nowhere near complete, however, it is a sample representative of the films that were showing back then..

If there is a particular sci-fi or horror film pairing that is not represented here, please choose the "Other" selection.  :)
The difference between martyrdom & suicide is press coverage...

I want to vote for at least half of those.  I'm conflicted about my vote - TEEN WEREWOLF and SAUCER MEN - because those aren't commercially available thanks to Suzie Hart, the so-called rightsholder.  I'd hate to have her believe she should wait a few more decades to unleash these as if THEN she'll make a kajillion overnight.  "Two more decades" should just about wipe out the original fan base, and a good many of their kids, too.
