Rocketship X-M (1950)

An inadvertent romantic comedy? I’m not sure I have enough mustard for the ham in this one. This movie features Lloyd Bridges, Osa Massen, John Emery, Noah Beery, Jr., Hugh O’Brian, Morris Ankrum, Patrick Ahern, Sherry Moreland, John Dutra and Katherine Marlowe. Four men and a woman blast into space on humanity’s first expedition to the Moon, a 48-hour journey. A malfunction causes the ship to drift off course and sends them hurtling to Mars. The rocket passes through clouds to land on Mars where they find evidence of a once-powerful civilization where everything is tinted orange.

Snow Creature, The (1954)

Members of a scientific expedition to the Himalaya’s that encounter and capture a Yeti. The creature is then brought back to the U.S., only to escape and run havoc. The Snow Creature was the first of several “Yeti / Abominable Snowman” themed movies. It also bore some resemblance to King Kong, in terms of plot, with act-one in an exotic setting and act-two taking place in an urban setting.

Incredible Petrified World, The (1957)

After the crew leaves the bell to explore, they soon find a large network of caves and a survivor who has been there for over a decade. The survivor reveals the horrible truth: there is no way to get out of the caves. Or is there a way?
