I have a copy of Sci-Fi Boys, a documentary on old Sci-Fi films.  It had a segment on Paul Blaisdell, but the segment was cut out of the main documentary; it was only accessible through special features.    Bluesad

Good article.  I'm amazed that his suits actually look better in color than in black and white; normally it's the other way around.  He had talent; I wish his career hadn't turned sour.

     I had read that Forrest J Ackerman, who once was friends with Blaisdell, refused to mention his mame in Famous Monsters, perhaps due to competition.

A great and long article dedicated to Blaisdell has been published just last month on french magazine L'Ecran Fantastique.

Actually,FJA had nothing to do with it. Paul had caught wind of something wrote about him in Famous Monsters #1. He ragged FM-and publisher James Warren  caught wind of it,and forbade Forry from ever mentioning Paul's name in the magazine ever again. Paul ,Bob Burns and Ron Haydock made Fantastic Monsters mag-which died when the  printing office caught fire. Haydock died in a car wreck in 1977.

    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.
