Monster of the Day #511

    “Ben Grimm: “Mom?””

    Funny, she doesn’t *look* Jewish.

  • Blaisdell wanted to build a new monster for GHOST OF DRAGSTRIP HOLLOW, but AIP more or less demanded yet another refurbishing of the She Creature suit. You can’t see it here, but Paul didn’t even bother with new feet and the monster wears sneakers! Hollywood has a long history of ignoring it’s own talent, even at the smaller studios like the young AIP. (On the other hand, Cuddles was the studio’s most famous and celebrated creation, so making as much use of it as possible does make sound business sense.)

    This monster totally hates royalty, or anything dealing with the class system.  Why, it even insisted that its blog entry not have a title.

    Watching all of Blaisdell’s real life creations go up in flames at the end of How to Make a Monster is a horrifying spectacle.

  • Well, not ‘all’ of them. Although a few were burned by a premature test of the fire jets, most were saved. The couple seen burning in close-up were made for the picture. (Great movie, by the way. I wish my Columbia tape included the color ending.)

     At least in my browser, above the “By Ken Begg” there is no “Monster of the Day 511”

    Still true.
