In the early 1950's in South Africa, the censor board was presented with a seized book - minus cover - the title of which caused them to ban it immediately.

The title and author? "Black Beauty" by Anna Sewell!  Buggedout Buggedout

Probably the most amazing thing about that is how generally good the production is and how solid the performances.  I gather Corman used two cameras for it, shooting both sides of a two shot at the same time - which, apparently, he rarely did to save money on film. 

Here's a random tidbit: if people are isolated in an environment without any day/night cycles, so they just sleep when they get tired and do whatever whenever they wake up, people naturally adopt a 25 hour day.  Though some people say it is shorter than this.  Pretty interesting.

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
