Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #206!

I Married a Monster from Outer Space  (Paramount Pictures, 1958)
This is a cool little 50's sci-fi flick. On their wedding night, Tom Tryon is replaced by an alien - and poor Gloria Talbott doesn't realize it - at first. Eventually she figures it out - including that she's not the only woman married to one - and learns the aliens' plan - to mate with Earth women to repopulate their planet. Creepy!

Thar She Blows!  (Entertainment Ventures, 1968)

Oh look! It's one of David F. Friedman's patented soft core nudie sex flicks. Well, how could the perpetually 15 year old boy who lives inside me resist this title or the other dirty puns on the poster?

The Brute Man  (Producer's Releasing Corporation, 1946)

Universal shot this in 1945, once again playing off star Rondo Hatton's real life disfigurement from acromegaly. When Hatton passed away after production before the film's release - Universal got nervous about their exploitation of his condition and shelved the movie. They then sold it to PRC who put it out a year later.

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. Interesting info on The Brute Man. I'll need to check out more of Rondo's work.

    1. Rondo was a very cool guy - and his movies are worth seeking out. Let us know what you think after you check some out.

  2. That poster for Thar She Blows must have been quite scandalous at the time.
