Presenting John Agar (1921-2002)

Deadly Movies Icons

Deadly Movies salutes another icon of 50s monster movies. John Agar began his movie career in Westerns alongside real life bride Shirley Temple. The 50’s would see Agar hit a rich vein of form in b-movie horror and sci-fi. Agar also has a strange link to King Kong, appearing in a small cameo role in Dino De Laurentiis’ 1976 Kong remake and strangely an Arkansas dinosaur theme park was named ‘John Agar’s Land of Kong’. During the 50’s Agar battled the Gill Man, the Mole People, the Pupet People, a giant brain, and a giant spider. This is a man for whom no horror was too great, presenting John Agar:

Revenge of The Creature (1955)
Tarantula (1955)
The Mole People (1956)
The Brain From Planet Arous (1957)
Attack of The Pupet People (1958)
