.., Crappy Backdrop Moment in ‘The Creature With The Atomic Brain’ (1955)
Check out this particularly lazy bit of stage management from 1955 b-movie extraordinaire ‘The Creature With The Atomic Brain‘. When b-movie journeyman, and certifued Deadly Movies Icon, Richard Denning comes home to the little wife (slapping her ass on the front porch, 50s style.., Booyah!) little does he realise that it’s not only atomic zombies that he has to worry about. Walking in through the front door you can clearly see the canvas that represents the street outside standing on the fake lawn. Either Denning has gone mad with atomic poisoning and commissioned a huge to-scale portrait of his neighbourhood, or some stagehand was having a very bad day at work. Props here too to the director and editor for completely missing this in the final cut. B-movie goodness at its best.
