Monster of the Day #1000


This must have been a nice change of pace for Mr. Kiel. Here he played a scientist (an alien one, to boot), instead of just a hulking menacing sidekick. As is often the case, he is thwarted when he learns a bit too much about what we humans call love.

    Ro-Man can identify with Dr. Kolos.

    What movie is this one from? And did Mr. Kiel actually get some lines in it?

    And am I wrong or did he not also appear in an episode of the original series of Star Trek as an alien robot?

    Ted Cassidy in “What are Little Girls Made of”

  • Eric Hinkle

    Oops! Thanks for the correction.

    Hmm, I wonder if Misters Cassidy and Kiel ever appeared together in a film?

  • bgbear_rnh

    When I saw Richard Kiel live, Ted Cassidy had just died a few months earlier. Kiel said one of his own neighbors was shocked to see him come home alive after a movie location shoot.

    I do not know about a film/TV but, they did a commercial together. I think lite beer from Miller.

  • Happy 1000th MOTD Ken!

    Hey, I just saw the the leading man was the same in both films.

  • The Rev.

    The Human Duplicators?

    I believe so though I’ve only seen it on MST3K and that was years ago.

    THE HUMAN DUPLICATORS, exactly the sort of 60’s science fiction-spy movie cross I love so dearly. Add Hugh Beaumont as the M analog and stock cues from the 50’s Universals, to say nothing of an adorable leading lady, and you have a nearly perfect B movie formula. Sadly, I don’t have a copy yet. Does anyone know if this has gotten an official release on DVD?

  • bgbear_rnh

    aren’t we all potentially human duplicators?

  • Ken_Begg

    I know, crazy, right?

  • Ken_Begg

    Well, not me, but most people. Those who can get dates, basically.

    You can watch the MST3K version on Youtube.

  • Flangepart

    AH! Good choice.
    Love his hair in this. Very Vagas Elvis.

    I think it makes him look like a tall member of the North Korea ruling class.
