Let's All Go To The Movies - They Came From Beyond Space

Occasionally the search for old photographs finds your LOST GALLERY curator in the darkest corner of a junk shop, elbow deep in a hat-box of ephemera. It's rare, but occasionally we see a familiar face ...

Well, I think I know who that fellow who is trying to look like he's out cold.

The 1967 film "They Came From Beyond Space" featured Robert Hutton, Jennifer Jayne and Zia Mohyeddin. (All of whom would probably not wish to be reminded.)

Scientists investigating an unusual meteor shower in a rural field are possessed by an alien force bent on an ulterior purpose.

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

"What are they doing?"


  1. I love how the guys in the background are smiling. Perhaps they've already succumbed to the evil alien ways.

    1. Thanks Tattered and Lost. You're right! This silly movie still make me want to see the flick just to see if it can be as silly as this frame.

    2. A local channel used to carry all of these bizarre sic-fi movies on Saturday afternoon a long long time ago. I couldn't get enough of them. "Teenagers From Outer Space" still remains one of my faves. But there was one, and I don't remember the name of it, that had a scientist smoking a cigarette. He moved his hand, with the cig, to the back of his head for a moment, and when his hand came back down the cig was gone. Nobody caught this? First it's there and then it's not? And he never did catch on fire.

    3. Thanks Tattered and Lost. Yes, I love those old "B" SciFi movies too. And when you spot a blooper it makes it all the more fun. We just saw "Interstellar" and came away with what we think was a blooper. We will have to watch it again on DVD later to be sure.

    4. Bloopers are so much fun. Saw one on Newsroom the other day. First something was there and then it wasn't and then it was. Another show had people disappearing. Thank goodness for a DVR because I can go right back look at it again. Pure waste of time, but a bit of schadenfreude. Sort of like people looking for typos in a book and then writing to the publisher to let them know. Editors are always so happy to get those messages.

    5. Ha! I bet they are! Especially after the book has been out a couple years. I know what you mean. Doors open and closed, clothing and hair rearranged, cigarettes fresh lit and suddenly half smoked, a glass half full, then full, then empty. And all because the director decided to shoot a two sided conversation with one camera, first one angle and then the other. Did you see the fake "blooper reel" at the end of one of the animated features in the past couple years. Ice Age or Shrek or one of those. Of course they're no actual bloopers. They're cartoons!
