Another week, another MYSTERY PHOTO!
Jon Kitley, pillar of the Chicago Horror Community and head honcho over at KITLEY'S KRYPT, wants to challenge your horror knowledge. Week in, week out, he posts a Mystery Photo - sometimes from an obscure horror title, sometimes just an unusual shot from a well-known classic. We figured our faithful Claw readers would enjoy the challenge!
Last week's photo was from one of those fun big bug flicks from the '50s (though a little harder to come by these days), Kenneth G. Crane's MONSTER FROM GREEN HELL (1958). Starring Jim Davis (years before his turn as Jock Ewing on the TV show Dallas), MFGH did receive a DVD release from Image in 2001, but now seems to be well out of print. Too bad, as it's one of those movies whose publicity stills pop up frequently in reference books, whetting fans' appetites to actually see it. However, while the giant wasps pictured below are pretty amazing, they only represent a small part of the film. Fans of the '50s gigantism craze are going to be far more entertained by something from Bert I. Gordon.
Let's see how well you fare with this week's offering:
