11.29.05Alamo Downtown For the second show, they screened this 1951 science fiction film of Ulmer's. It pre-dated The Thing From Another World, making it one of the very very first sci-fi movies ever. It was made for what looks like 5 bucks, shot in 6 days on the sets of Ingrid Bergman's Joan of Arc using enough fog machine smoke to choke a horse. The titular man wears a laughably fake "alien" head/space mask contraption and communicates through simple musical tones... and math. For all of its limitations though, this is a pretty fun little '50s sci-fi romp. Not great or anything, but a fun watch to be sure.
