It’s not easy being green. (Well, you knew this guy was going to show up.)
If this picture strikes a chord among readers of a certain age (which is the exceedingly small demographic this site caters to), it’s because this photo appeared in Denis Gifford’s seminal A Pictorial History of Horror Movies, perhaps the first book in the long ago age when there not only wasn’t an Internet, but not a lot of genre movie books, either. As such, fans such as myself tended to pour over this tome again and again, dreaming of seeing exotic films back when it was nearly impossible to imagine doing so (this also being decades before home video).
These films did hit schlock UHF TV stations in the early ’70s, where they amazed monster-obsessed youngsters by being a lot gorier than the American stuff shown on TV up until that time.
This fellow also had the rare privilege of appearing in a sequel film, one in which he clearly got ahead.
