Hey!  That's so funny that you'd name "Mant" as a '50's fave, when it's actually a modern parody, with John Goodman --
Just shows how it got that "50's feel down pat -- I like it too --
I know a lot of people here didn't like it, but I thought,as a modern parody,  "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavara" got a lot of the '50's feel exactly right also --

Finally some love for Cadavera.  Very funny and inspired spoof of the 50's sci-fi genre.  Plus, Fay Masterson is smoking hot.

LOL... I was hoping somebody would catch onto Mant. Yeah, I threw it in their as a kicker. But yes, they really did do a good job in creating that authentic flavor. And John Goodman pulled off his part too, he's in my list of favorite actors.

Iv'e never seen the movie,but I wonder if the title is a take on the old Famous Monsters sponsered Aurora model kit-'the Forgotton Prisoner of Castel Mare'...?

Surprised no one mentioned my favorite '50s SCIFI:
NOT OF THIS EARTH (1957 ~ which seems to be impossible to find on DVD... any suggestions?)

I also like some mentioned flix like:
THE BLOB
THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN
INVADERS FROM MARS
THE THING (FROM ANOTHER WORLD)
One of the best thrillers yet made...
INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS
20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH

Oh, and some of the flix seem to be from the '60s like IT! (1966)

I watched so many of the great SciFi movies on the late show as kid.

My favorites would have to be in this order

Forbidden Planet - The great effects provided by Disney, the wholes setup became the inspiration for Star Trek and so many others that followed.

The Thing - first of the flying saucer pictures and it had me hiding behind the couch as a kid. My brother who has posted here a couple of times as OldSouthern actually hid under the seats at the theater.

Them - My great aunt laughed her head off when I was watching this on Chiller Theater at her house.  "Look it's giant p**s-ants", but hey they were spooky to me. I used the wonder if I heard that noise they made in the woods behind our house.

The Day the Earth Stood Still - I remember this first time I saw this on the NBC Saturday Night Movie when I was about 7. This was another early entry into the saucer genre.


I could name lots more, but they've mostly all been named.  There was so much drive-in fare made in the 50's that it would be hard to name all that schlock here.  I'm still discovering stuff I haven't seen.

Just wait for the remake with Keanu Reeves are Klaatu.  I wish I was making that up.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
