Monster Monday!

Looks like a real mixed bag this time around!
notofthisearth_lc
First up, here's a lobby card for "Not of This Earth"! More Monster goodies after the jump!

onemillionbc_1940_still.JPG
Next, we have a still from the 1940 version of One Million BC!

phantom_aurorakitbuilt.JPG
Must be time for some Phantom of the Opera stuff, eh? First off, we've got this built and painted "Frightening Lightning" version of Aurora's Phantom of the Opera model kit!

phantom_insert
Next, an insert for the second version of "Phantom of the Opera"!

phantom_maskphantom_maskphantom_mask.JPG
All three of the above masks were identified by their sellers as being the Phantom of the Opera, but if you ask me, only the first one has a valid claim to that label!

phantom_remcofig1phantom_remcofig2
Remco's Phantom of the Opera action figure! I was not aware until I came across this that it came with the removable mask!

phantomofopera_lc1
phantomofopera_still01
phantomopera_rlc8
A pair of lobby cards and a still... not sure if they're all from the same version or not!

plan9_poster
Yes, friends, here's the poster for "Plan 9 From Outer Space"! Has there ever been another monster movie that so aptly fits the "so bad, it's good" category? I think perhaps the only movie with a bigger cult following has to be "Rocky Horror Picture Show," and I'm not sure how that following's doing these days...

planetofdinos_pakistani.jpg
Pakistani poster for "Planet of the Dinosaurs"!

planetofdinosaurs_mexlc.JPG
Mexican lobby card for "Planet of the Dinosaurs"!

raven_8mm
8mm home movie version of the Karloff/Lugosi "The Raven"!

raven_poster
Poster for the Price/Lorre/Karloff version!

raven_still1
I believe that this still is from the first version of "The Raven," given the lack of period clothing...

returnoffly_poster
"The Return of the Fly" poster!

returnofvampire_lc1
returnvamp_lc
A pair of lobby cards for "Return of the Vampire"!

"Rodan" Lobby Cards!

rodan_mexlc.JPG
"Rodan" Mexican lobby card!

rodan_still
Autographed Rodan still!

scarsofdrac_still6.JPG
A whole mess of stills from "Scars of Dracula"!

screamingskull_insert
Insert poster for "the Screaming Skull"!

shecreature_lc
Lobby card for "The She-Creature"!

shedemons
Really, really ugly poster for "The She-Demons," starring TV's Sheena, Irish McCalla, although I don't know if she'd played Sheena by this point or not.

shootaspook_targetset.JPG
Shoot-A-Spook target set!

shrunkenHeadAppleSculptureMISB
The classic Shrunken Head Apple Sculpture Set, one of those toys I desperately wanted, but couldn't convince my parents to get for me!

sonofdrac_halfsheet
And we'll wrap things up with this half sheet (or is it a lobby card?) for "Son of Dracula"!

Next time: "Son of Frankenstein" and more!

  1. Jon,
    Re: "I don't know if she'd played Sheena by this point or not."

    Irish McCalla was in Sheena from 1955-1956. She Demons came out in 1958.
    Hope this helps!
