The other was, of course, INVADERS FROM MARS.  Imagine an eight year old child, seeing something that visualised every child's deepest nightmare: being terrified, with no one to help,....and seeing your parents (who were the only ones who COULD help), turned into brutal strangers who didn't know you.

INVADERS was a real DOOZY,  but I'm glad I saw it when I did....before 1963,  when childhood ended and innocence was lost.

E, thankfully I don't know anyone who doesn't like the original Invaders From Mars. I can say with no hesitation it's one of my top 3 all time oldie sci-fi favorites (along with "The Thing From Another World" and "The Day The Earth Stood Still"). I could watch those films every day and never get tired of them.

A while back I sat with Jimmy Hunt who played David MacLean, the terrorized lad we all related to, for almost an hour at the Hollywood Collector's Show reminiscing about the film. He's still very fond of it and is hopeful of doing a DVD clean-up and re-release. I'm crossing my fingers, since the current "Special Edition" ain't so special, with a so-so quality print.

Here's yours truly with Jimmy -- "Gee whiz!! Colonel Fielding! Colonel Fielding!"...

I do still have modest affection for the old  (early 1960s) CHILLER THEATRE films:  ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT WOMAN,  FOUR SKULLS OF JONATHAN DRAKE, LEECH WOMAN and the 1953 INVADERS FROM MARS.  I also saw WASP WOMAN there on WPIX - Ch. 11.  Jack Kennedy was President at the time, so these were still pretty new.  I was pretty new myself.

The two that got me BIG TIME, were "JONATHAN DRAKE", with Zatai climbing up the rose trellis, and the sight of a headless body in the casket.
(Mega scary when there's a similar trellis outside your window.)

The other was, of course, INVADERS FROM MARS.  Imagine an eight year old child, seeing something that visualised every child's deepest nightmare: being terrified, with no one to help,....and seeing your parents (who were the only ones who COULD help), turned into brutal strangers who didn't know you.

I saw "Invaders From Mars" on the same station.........and the effect has lingered to this day. LOVE that film!!
