Podcast # 586 – “It Came From Beneath the Sea” – 1605.08

This week our resident classic Sci-Fi film geek Mark is back with a look at another fun movie.  This time it’s from 1955 and called “It Came From Beneath the Sea.”  Here are some words from Mark about this classic SF film.

Hello Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie.  This week I’m going back to the 1950s for a Creature Feature.  Today’s movie is “It Came from Beneath the Sea.”  It stars Kenneth “The Thing from Another World” Tobey, Faith “This Island Earth” Domergue and Donald “The Earth vs. The Flying Saucers” Curtis.  It’s a classic sci-fi B-movie.  What makes it even better is Ray Harryhausen’s stop animation.  This is a fun movie.  I hope you all enjoy it!
Take care everyone…
